Muse Challenge #8

Good Morning,

Another week and another Muse Card Challenge and this week's Muse card is by the very talented Therese Calvird.  For some reason Therese's card inspired me to create a totally different style of card than what I normally make.  But that is what is so great about challenges, getting to do something new and unexpected.

Supplies Used:
MME - Honeycake DP
Stampin Up - Fabulous Florets
Stampin Up - Sentiment
Pearls from my stash
Paper Piercing by my sewing machine
The edges of the paper was distressed using decorative scissors  however I should have a distress tool with me soon so it should make the job a bit easier.

Muse Card by Therese Calvird

The inspiration I took from Therese's card was the patterened paper, I knew I had something similar in my stash somewhere.  The colour of flowers is similar, however that is just where my card took me.

Thanks for visiting
