Muse and NBUS - Congratulations

Greetings!

Hope everyone is having an enjoyable day.

First, a big congrats to Muse for their 200th challenge.  Second, wish Darnell a speedy recovery.

Today, I'm playing cards with Jenni at Muse Challenge #200 and Darnell at her NBUS Challenge #9.

My rendition of Jenni's card is a close CASE using the same stamp set, layout, dotted DP. I changed the colors to the purple/grey palette and stamped the sentiment to follow the curve of the oval frame. For some sparkle the flower was painted with a couple coats of clear WOS.

The NBUS item is the purple/lavender toned brad (with prongs removed) for the flower center.  If my name is drawn, ANY of the prizes will be perfect.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

MCV - You're on the Nice List

Hello Everyone!

Hope your day is well.

Today, I'm playing cards at Muse: ChristmasVisions 76 where Kimberly (and Cornelia and Chriss) provided lots of inspirations.  For my card I chose to use the colors, Santa, snow slope.  The packages have been decorated with dots and the ribbons painted with clear WOS to make them look silver.

Muse - Happy Valentine's Day

Hello Everyone!  

Hope your day is well.

Today, I'm playing cards at Muse where Tracey provided a gorgeous pink pastel design for our inspirations.  For my card I chose to use a pink heart, heart within heart, gold, black-inked sentiment.  To achieve the pink color on the heart I smooshed Picked Raspberry with gold shimmer.

NBUS 8 - hugs

Greetings!

Hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start.  

I'm starting my card-making year by participating in Darnell's fun NBUS #8 Challenge.  For my card I was inspired by the one below created by Ardyth posted on Monday, January 16.  

My NBUS item is the die-cut sentiment.  
Also, my card includes the optional element of using Colored Pencils on Kraft card stock.
