Muse Challenge 29
I missed the Muse challenge last week and was determined not to make the same mistake this week. So I was wxcited to see that the Muse this week is Laurie Willison - I LOVE her cards and find her blog so inspiring. I will admit that this card is no exception, but the colours were challenging to me - a more muted pallette than I usually work with. It took a couple of days of percolating, but the card finally worked itself out last night while I slept! Anyone else dream card designs?!
I decided to use the "sketch" and work with a slightly bolder tone of the same colours. I kept the background very monochromatic and let the flowers add the punch of colour. I pulled the blue, yellow, and green from the background of Laurie's card and used those colours for my flowers. I love the result. The flowers are from a Verve set called "Make a Statement" and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches "Sentiment Sampler" - love that set. Thanks for stopping by!
