I Miss Your Smile

Hi there

I wanted to make sure I played along at Muse this week as my fabulous teamie at Less is More, Sarah, is our Guest Muse this week.

Here's my card.  I used lots of the elements of Sarah's card to create this one...the black glitter die cuts, inlaid with the yellow/blue/green background, the stripy paper and also the popped up sentiment strip...

I started by watercolouring with Distress Inks in blue and yellow which also then created the green when blended.  I cut this out with a butterfly die and also cut the same butterfly from some black glitter cardstock then inlaid the bits and bobs onto a scrap of cardstock covered in adhesive.  I then fussy cut the completed butterfly.  The 'smile' was cut from the same black glitter cardstock and adhered over some striped yellow paper onto which I stamped the first part of the sentiment.  The butterfly was then popped up on 3D foam as was the rest of the sentiment which I stamped onto a small strip of white cardstock.

Materials used:

  • Dies: Memory Box - Vivienne Butterfly; Wplus9 - Flower Doodles (smile)
  • Ink: Distress Ink - Squeezed Lemonade, Mermaid Lagoon; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamps: Wplus9 - That Is All
  • Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn - Let's Polka
  • Glitter Cardstock: Best Creation

Here is Sarah's fantastic card, there's still the best part of a day to enter if you want to play along at Muse...

I'm also going to enter this card at the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - September Challenge - Add a Sentiment
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #209 - CAS

And as this is the first use of my 'smile' die I'm also going to link up at Darnell's NBUS Challenge #7!

That's all from me today although I will be back tomorrow as it's my turn to be your designer over at Muse.  I hope you'll pop by again soon.
