Muse 40 - Hope


This week, Darnell is our Guest Muse at Muse. October is breast awareness month, and Darnell's beautiful card is packed full of meaning and inspiration and is designed to provide hope for someone who needs it.



I took it to the absolute minimum, I think, while still preserving the message. These spring flowers are the epitome of new life and hope. As Darnell says in her post, we all know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease, and supporting each other with cards, words, thoughts and actions are ways that we can fight back.

I stamped the (very old Stampin' Up!) flowers in Melon Mambo and Lucky Limeade and then shaded them with some copics.

I hope you'll play along with us this week. The deadline is Monday morning at 8:00 am EDT. Then you can vote for your 3 favourites until Tuesday morning and the results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

Hope to see you there!

You conveyed my message with far fewer words and elements, Ardy, which is why you always blow me away with your precise and perfect CASliciousness! I love this so much!! Hugs, Darnell

Fabulous line image with just a blush of colour - perfect CAS (as always!).

Geri said...

Beautiful! You really have captured the essence of the message in this card with the perfectly shaded pink tulips (yes, definitely an oldie, but goodie).

Simplistic but oh-so-effective CASE. Wanted to let you know that I saw in our newspaper today that they found a Bowie interview from 1973 and it's on the net somewhere for all to hear...
