MUSE3 - Happy Birthday


This card is for this week's Muse Challenge. This week our Muse is Laurie Willison's beautiful card here:

I focused on the bright citrus-y colours, the horizontal band, the neutral card base and the pearls (which I coloured with Copics - it worked really well!).

Have you played along with Muse yet? It's really interesting. You don't have to do anything to be a member other than play along. You just get inspiration from the Muse of the Week, link up your card, and then you comment on at least 3 other entrants and finally (and this is the really fun part) you get to vote on your top 3 - right on the blog itself, it's easy as pie! That way, the winners are actually chosen by the participants. Cool, right? I hope you'll play along!
