Muse Card Challenge #94

Hi everyone! Just a quick post from me today to share a card I created for the Muse Card Challenge. Marion Vagg created our Muse card for this week and as always, it's a 'Beauty'! Here is Marion's card:



And, here is my very literal take on Marion's card:




It's a little difficult to see the alphas in the die cut sentiment, so here is a close up:


I used a mix of Hero Arts shadow inks and SSS inks for the balloons, and white embossing powder for the sentiment. It's difficult to see on screen, but I used Hero Arts Silver ink for the balloon strings and my brandy new Mama Elephant 'Happy' die :)

So, that's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Wowzers - this is a great card - I love your take on the Muse card.

Joyce said...

Oh, this is so pretty. Similar, but different, too. I actually find it encouraging that I am not the only one who loves a Muse card so much that they just want to replicate it! Your balloon collection is lovely, perfect colors, and each placed just so. Now, I need that ME happy die.

Sherry Butcher said...

Great job, love the colors, the details added and the new die. TFS.

Kelly Latevola said...

I love how transparent your balloons look! Wonderfully happy card indeed :)
