Muse #1

I was checking out the blogs of some of my favorite blogging buddies and wouldn't you know...there is a new challenge in town :) I'm always looking for a great challenge blog, and I'm thinking this one's going to be one of them. If you haven't seen or heard about it yet, it's called Muse, you should go check it out.

Here are the rules:
  • Use what you have in your stash, don't purchase anything new for your Muse cards.
  • Explain your interpretation of the Muse inspiration card in your post and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for one of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring.
And here is my card:


If you follow my blog, or stop by from time to time, then you know about my job situation. I am fortunate enough that I will continue to work until the first week of May. However, three of my co-workers, including my boss, will be leaving on Feb. 15th.While making this card I was going over my list of cards I needed to make and decided this one would be perfect for her.


Here you can see that I stamped two flowers and cut the center of one and attached it to the other with my dots, as well as the flower itself. I attached the card front to the base with foam tape. I added a little extra color with a copic marker.

Here is this week's inspiration card by the very talented Amy. I pulled my inspiration from the beautiful yellow flower and great layout. 


Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to check out this supper fun new challenge.

Deanna Jean

Supplies:
