When I was making this card for this weeks Muse challenge, I really thought it resembled Michele's beautiful card above.
I had the colour blue (okay it looks more a turquoise in the photo!) I had a panel of blue behind the top image.The image is flowers in a row and I even stamped them twice as had Michele .Put my sentiment in the right hand corner ...I even had the (hand drawn) black line under the flowers!Then I went to post it and ..it looked nothing like Michele's :)
Just goes to show that everyone can take the same idea and run with it completely differently!
I have been card making for nearly four years and ok we should really discount the first year because I spent it just getting the basics together (and wasted a lot of money on buying things that didn't work for me) but since then I have spent time building up my stash ...but guess what for this challenge I didn't have a stamp that I could use apart from one that I got as a freebie in a craft magazine years ago! ..but actually it stamps pretty good and the sentiment I bought in that first year and it too has spent time languishing in a drawer.So thanks Michele for inspiring me to go on the hunt and on the way found some little gems!
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to look,and especially the ones who leave a comment ...they make my day.
