Muse #123

Hi there!

It's been a while since I had the chance to play at the Muse card club. There's a fresh new design team waiting to inspire us!

It's Joan's first opportunity to inspire , and so she did! Not only do I love looking at Joan's creations, I love to read what she has on her mind too! The last part of her posts always make me giggle! It's the part where she describes her mood after finishing a card... priceless... and I am sure we can all relate to her feelings!

On to the card:






I think it's quite clear what inspire me. I translated her grid like background to a Silhouette cut version (restricted the size to add CAS white space), added 2 strawberries, a Silhouette cut sentiment and 3 black gems to finish the picture. Strawberries coloured with Promarkers.

I love the envelope with its fresh green inner, and decided to pull that into the design as well.

A card for more than one occasion as you can finish the sentiment off on the inside, with birthday wishes, etc.
This is the inspiration card:

LOVE! Thanks for playing. I am honored! I particularly love that grid you made. My Silhouette and Cricut are both stored away. Why?? No clue but you are inspiring me to get them out.

This is a fantastic take on the Muse! Your cut reminds me of a berry basket, perfect for the strawberries and for Joan's crosshatched background element! So glad you joined us this week, Hannelie!
