Muse #3

I'm stopping in with my card for this week's Muse challenge. This week their inspiration card is from the very talented Laurie @ Soapbox Creations. I have been a huge fan of hers for a long time, so to get a chance to create a card based on one of her's...oh yeah..I'm there!

Here is my take on this week's inspiration card:


The colors Laurie used are amazing. I love the green patterened paper she used but couldn't find anything in my stash that looked right. I decided to make my own. Using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, I applied Lucky Limeade ink to the positive side of the texture. I gently placed the Lucky Limeade paper on top and ran it through my Big Shot. This took a couple of tries. I found if you get ink on any other part of the folder, like between the raised pattern, it will also show up and looks really bad. Laurie is who I originally discovered the rolled flowers from, so I decided to make a cluster of them in place of the felt flower. 

Laurie's amazing card:

Thanks for stopping by.
Deanna

Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Pretty Peonies
Ink: Stampin' Up! Lucky Limeade & Tangerine Tango Papertrey Ink Harvest Gold
