Muse #33 - Thanks!


For this week's Muse Challenge, where this week's Muse is Design Team Member, Laurie Willison:



I focused on the chevron Laurie created, the slanted sentiment and the colours. My son tells me these are sergeant stripes, so I guess I also picked up the nautical motif as a military element!

I used Stampin' Up!'s new Chevron border punch to create the chevrons in navy and coral, and popped them up to add some dimension and create a 'channel' for the sentiment.

I hope you'll have time to join us and play along this week! The deadline is Monday at 8:00 am EDT, but even if you can't play along, you can participate by voting for your 3 favourite entries from Monday at 8 until Tuesday at 8. Hope to see you there!

Love this, Ardyth. Love the little "thanks" tucked into the 'sergeants' stripes! You are just brilliant. One month and counting... : ) Bev

ACK! I love this!! SO graphic. I've seen the SU punch, and just found MFT has a chevron die similar to this. It's on my "must have" list. Perfect font/size sentiment, and love that it's the same color as the blue chevron.

I saw Bev's comment above, are you visiting her as well on your Chicago trip? That's so awesome!!

Your son must have inherited your creative mind to pick up on the nautical theme! LOVE the layered chevrons and the sweet, teenie tiny "thanks", snuggled so comfortably between the dies!

Joyce said...

What a fun take on the original card. I like how your sentiment is just tucked in the midst of your chevrons.

Vicky Hayes said...

This is a perfect card Ardyth! Love the popped up chevrons and the way the sentiment nestles perfectly in there. Vicky x
