MUSE CARD CHALLENGE #116




Hello again, crafty friends! I'm back with a card I created for the current Muse Challenge...This week our Muse is Vicki Dutcher, and I just fell in love with her card...WOW! Here is my card:
                                                                                                                                                                                                     



I stayed with Vicki's sketch, but wanted to do a few things to make this card 'my own', so I started by choosing an ampersand from Mama Elephant and the Hero Arts heart background stamp, which I inked with my new Ombre inks. I also used Shape n' Tape (washi) for the diagonal stripes and the same Ombre inks for the shadow...A stitched circle and a few small crystal sequins, and I was done!

I hope your week is going well! Thanks so much for stopping by ~
