Muse 122 - Thank you, Marion!


This is my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where DT Member Marion has provided us with her final inspiration card before she moves on to other things:



Lately I've been doing a lot of working on the Muse blog, getting ready to make some announcements next week, and as soon as I saw Marion's 3 balloons,  I saw a distinct similarity to our beloved logo.

Muse

So I let the Muse logo and Marion's card (I wonder if it was intentional?) to make this thank you card which I will (very appropriately, I think) send to Marion to thank her for her work with us over the last two and a half years.

I cut the hearts in white and coloured them with two copics each, to get some shading and dimension. I placed them on a black background and laid a thin strip of silver glitter paper to catch the sparkle of Marion's balloon strings. I finished with a white die cut Simon sentiment, coated in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder (I find that so much easier than Glossy Accents!)

Beautiful card, and a fantastic take on the Muse. It really does remind me of the challenge logo. Perhaps that is where both of your minds went.
