Muse 27 - Thanks!


Here's my take on this week's Muse by Guest Designer Tracey McNeely:




I focused on the colours and how the flowers 'hug' the sentiment. I used my Grand Calibur circle nestabilities to create my graphic cuves, and the sentiment is my trusty old Inkadinkado 'thanks'.

I have to say that there are so many things I love about running Muse. Getting to know the Design Team members (Laurie Willison, Marion Vagg and Therese Calvird) as well as lining up the Guest Designers each month. Getting to know participants when I visit all your blogs and when I mess up the voting and get LOTS of (kind and forgiving) emails from you! lol!  And when I look back at the cards I've made each week, I love how the Muses have taken me in so many different directions! Some of my favourite cards were made for this challenge - and you have to love a challenge that brings out the best in you, right?

I hope you'll play along this week (deadline is Monday at 8:00 am EDT) - but even if you can't, don't forget to vote for your favourite 3 designs starting Monday at 8:00 am until Tuesday at 8:00 am!

I really wish you could see me standing up and applauding over here, Ardyth!! This is soooo stunning!!! The design is superb with the circles off the edge. Colors are so intense, then there's that restful white space. And finally the type. LOVE it. It's so roundy, just like the overall card design. Bravo!!!
