Muse #100 - Hole-Hearted


This came to me as I fell asleep last night - I couldn't wait to get up and make this card for Muse #100 inspired by Michele's card



and for LIM206 - One-Layered, New Beginnings (this will be the card I use for my sister's wedding next month) and for Virginia's View #11 (my first time playing, finally!) Clean Slate.

To begin, I scored my card and then masked the inside panel before sponging it with Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Seedless Preserves (I was actually with Virginia when I bought this colour of distress ink!). I left it to dry.

Then I cut a simple heart from the front, outlined it in Stardust Stickles. Done.

The song (for the Muse Challenge) is "Hole-Hearted" by Extreme. And I think it works for their other hit song "More than Words", in a weird way.

I hope you'll play along with us at Muse this week - it's Michele's first week as our newest DT member, it's our 100th challenge and it's our second anniverary! We've even got prizes for 5 random participants! Hope to see you there before the deadline on Monday at 8 am EST!

This is why you're awesome - I would have just slapped some coloured cardstock on the inside of my card but you ink it with not one but three colours! Clean and gorgeous!
