Hi There!

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm quickly sharing a card for some challenges. My niece will be here later and we'll be starting her wedding invitations. The next 6 months will fly by with all the preparations, so we're getting started now.

This card is for the Muse: Challenge #153. You can see the fabulous card by this week's Muse, Tracey McNeeley, below. My card gave me fits! I knew what I wanted to do, but several attempts went into the recycle bin. I finally settled on this, even though I now think I should have stamped the flowers higher. Anyhow, the stamp is from Hero Arts and once again, I used Distress Markers to color directly onto the stamp. That turned out to not be an easy task for me. 

Here's Tracey's gorgeous card - 

I went with her inpiring 3 blooms for my card. Rather than emboss them in gold, I splattered some gold ink around my card. 

I am also entering this into the One Layer Simplicity Challenge #24 - Friends and Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #181 - Anything Goes.

Ok, on to the wedding invitations. Have a great weekend, everyone! Enjoy!



  1. Pam it doesn't look like you had any trouble at all, so pretty. I really like those blooms. Thank you for sharing with us at Muse this week!

  2. I think the flowers are add just the right level and I do like the look colouring straight onto the stamp gives. This never works for me x
