Muse Challenge #8

Good evening fellow crafters

Ever since I saw this week's Muse challenge on Monday I've had an idea in my head and I've only just managed to find the time to create it.  This week's Muse is Therese Calvird and her card design this week is really striking - I've included a pic of her design further down in this post.

I've drawn my inspiration this week from her lovely layout and this is my take on it...

and a closer view of the focal point...
I decided to use my new 'Blooming Marvellous' dies which I received yesterday from Clearly Besotted Stamps, to match the stamp set I already have.  I had a rummage through my stash of patterned paper (it didn't take!) and was so pleased to find this design paper to use as a background.  I love the way it echos the centre of the sunflower.  It was also great to use some different colours on a card, all my creations have been quite girlie lately so it was fun to have a change.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Blooming Marvellous
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Blooming Marvellous, Xcut - Nesting Squares; Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
  • Ink: Versa Color - Green Tea, Canary, Brown
  • Design Paper: Hot Off The Press - Cardmaker's Ultimate Pack Floral
  • Ribbon and gems from stash

Here is the inspiration card made by Therese...

Thanks for visiting and if you haven't done already, go have a go at this challenge.  It's great fun!
