I am playing along with Muse #23 this week, where our Muse is Anita with this gorgeous card. I have only recently begun following Anita's blog, and I was so happy to have the chance to make a card inspired by her. She is so talented, and also leaves such nice comments on my blog, which I read to myself in my head with a French accent.
One thing I have learned this week is that playing at the end of the challenge means that all the good ideas are used up. Either that, or my brain is being slow. I took a quick look at the gallery before starting this morning, and was blown away with the number of beautiful cards, any number of them making me slap the side of my head saying 'why didn't I think of that first'. So, I tried to take a different approach--I focused on the dots, the bling, and all that beautiful white space. Also, I picked a sentiment from the same Paper Smooches set as Anita used--Sentiment Sampler has got to be my all time favorite Paper Smooches set.
Next up is my entry into this week's RetroSketches RS#70. I used a Beautiful Butterflies die and some papers from Basic Grey Clippings to create my focal point for this anniversary card.
Last up today is a card for this week's Dynamic Duos DD#59, where I used Berry Sorbet along with Memento Grey Flannel. I followed the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch CTS#34. I inked up a Plain Jane set from Verve for the first time, too.
