Muse 167 - Happy Birthday


It occurs to me now, as I'm posting this, that I was really happy when I saw that Jenni's Muse inspiration for this week isn't flowers.



I love flowers. I love floral inspiration. And I've loved all the beautiful floral inspiration from our Muse design team. But I was excited to see something other than flowers this week.

And then I made a flower card!

I focused on Jenni's
-rainbow colour scheme
-birthday theme
-use of diecuts with black accents

I sponged a rainbow panel and then cut the flowers out and inlaid the petals into my white panel. I used enamel dots to 'solidify' the flower centres and make them look more like daisies and less like poinsettias.

I used:
-Simon Says Stamp Simple Poinsettia Cutouts
-Simon Says Stamp Square Greetings (retired)
-Distress inks
-Black enamel dots

I smiled when I read your post Ardyth - no flowers on the inspiration piece, and then you made a card with them!!
That is one beautiful card - love your die cut flowers!

I love the variegated colors on the petals and the outline stitching. Great card, Ardyth.

And such pretty flowers they are. It's hard for me to not use flowers or butterflies on my cards...lol.

Oh wow, I love, love, love this design! I simply can't resist those rainbow colors. And the black enamel centers are the perfect detail for this card.
