Guest Designing at MUSE!!!!

OH. MY. GOSH!!!! The incredibly talented, and oh so wonderful Ardyth from the Muse Challenge contacted me and asked if I wanted to be their Guest Designer for this week's challenge. It took less than a heartbeat for me to say YES, and then jump out of my chair to do a great big Happy Dance!!! DH wondered what the heck was going on....After calming down and letting him know what was happening, I got right on it, and emailed Ardyth! Not sure if you can tell how thrilled I am!!! Thanks so much Ardyth for this wonderful opportunity; I can't tell you just how honored (excited, humbled, tickled, happy) I am to have been asked.




And this is the card I came up with. I'd be so happy to see what you all come up with from this design. Hope you all play along!




It's really quite a simple design. Neenah white base with all scraps for the rest of the papers, including the shiny blue 'hello', and the shiny strip under the scalloped border. LF die cut "hello" and TE polaroid frame die. Three Michaels sequins and that's really it. Here's a close up of the shiny part:



Really hope to see you at Muse! Happy dances everyone.

Firstly congrats on the GD spot at Muse, then thanks for the inspiring card.
Secondly thanks for the lovely comment on my take on your card. I enjoying putting the little grey cells to use to create something that takes the elements and then just go with it. x
