Muse 52, DD87 - Framed Bloom


I made this card for this week's Muse challenge, inspired by Marion's beautiful card here:




I focused on the layered flower and the frame, but went a little bolder in my colour combination, so that I could play along with this week's Dynamic Duos challenge as well:



I used the same layering idea for my petals as I did on this card, but this time in die cuts, rather than layered stamping. I decided to leave this card without a sentiment, so that the focus is completely on the graphic bloom.

I hope you'll be able to play along with us at Muse this week - the deadline is on Monday morning at 8:00 am. Voting takes place between Monday morning and Tuesday morning (anyone can vote, even if you didn't link up a card!) and the results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

WOW! Into my fave pile. Yesterday's Purple Piece was also fabulous.It just blows me away how much drama you can create with so few elements.
I guess you can't WIN if you are part of the Muse team, but my votes would all be for your card.
It's amazing how you consistently define "Graphic" in a totally unique way each time you post a card.
thanks for tons of inspiration,
