I've got a couple of cards to share today. One will go into the Muse challenge, where Marion Vaag has this beautifully blue CAS card, and the second one will go over to Taheera's Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge. Before I show you mine, I'll show you theirs, and make sure you pop over and play along with both of these challenges!
Yummy in blue and white!
Wouldn't a room like this just be a fun place to hang out?!
Here's my blue Muse card:
Pulled a large blue scrap out the ever growing scrap box. Cut it to fit the A2 card base, then split it. I used an MFT die to create the celebratory sentiment, and then added a strip punched with an MS border punch, just for added interest. Another dark photo...it's really white behind the sentiment. It wouldn't show as a nice white no matter what I did! But irl, it looks sweet.
Next is my CFTMB card. I saw the sherbet-like colors and the geometric shapes, and went with them for my design.
I really went out of my comfort zone, didn't I?! A little CAS, and a little channeling of the ever fabulous Maria (from rieslingmama), and an extra shot of "just go with it" in my head. So I did. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and there you have it. All the papers, except the Michaels white base, are scraps. Starting at the top, an RC 'happy' sentiment, cut with an MFT flag die. Blue, gold and pink sequins. Some gold thread messed up around and behind the vellum, a bit of embossing paste in light green and orange, and an SC die cut twice. The yellow polka dot paper was stamped over with a Market Street stamp in a chicken wire pattern with ME piggy bank ink. Soooo....I'd love to know what you think! Happy dances everyone.
