Muse 13: Inspiration Made Marion
Time for another Muse Challenge! This week's muse is Marion Vagg - one of my faves - I just LOVE her style. This week's card does not disappoint. I was drawn to the colours and the striking simplicity of the design. The flowers made me think of the tulip festival Ottawa presents every May. During WWII, the Dutch royal family came took refuge in Canada. To commemorate this and Canada's role in the liberation of the Dutch people at the end of the war, the Dutch government sent over 100, 000 tulip bulbs as a thank you. The festival is fantastic and the tulips are absolutely beautiful - it is one of the many things I love about living in Ottawa. You can go here to read more about our wonderful tulips. All this to say, that I thought of our beautiful flowers when I saw Marion's card and that is what inspired me to make mine. The die I used is a Memory Box die - I believe it is called "Dancing Tulips". I cut thetulips from white cardstock and then coloured them with copics. The senitment is from a Clearly Besotted set - I can't remember which one I used, so I will add that in later. Thanks for stopping by - I am off to comment on the other wonderful creations at Muse.
