Muse Challenge #129

Hi everyone,

I have a card to share for this week's challenge at Muse. Anita Bowden has provided us with inspiration with her fabulous card:  




Here is my card:



I was inspired by Anita's color palette, design, and gold splatters. I used two shades of blue ink for the Stamplorations Bubble Stencil to create a gentle ombre effect, then die cut the SSS 'Thanks' die. As a nod to her gold leaves, I die cut the butterfly with gold foil cardstock and I used black cardstock for the sentiment, just as Anita did on her card. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by ~ Have a great weekend,

I just love your take on the Muse card. Those bubbles look so whimsical and perfectly match the funky font of your die cut sentiment. And, I love how you added touches of gold.
