Muse 99 - Happy Birthday!


This is my card for Muse 99 where our inspiration this week comes from DT Member Vicki's LOVE-ly valentine:



I focused on the basic layout and colours and changed the occasion. I used the PTI Phrase Play Happy die (cut down to a square) and sponged the 'red' background using Seedless Preserves and Ripe Persimmon. I used 3 gold enamel dots to capture the red dots and gold sequins from Vicki's original.

There's still a couple of days to play along - the deadline is Monday morning at 8 am EST. Voting begins at that time and continues until Tuesday morning at 9. Voting results will be posted at noon on Tuesday. Hope to see you there!

Stunning birthday card Ardyth and I love all that red that you sponged, so so beautiful. Thanks to you I now have all the mini distress inks and they are neatly tucked away in the sweet metal tins with their own blending sponges stored under neath the inks...so much fun to be ready to go now. Thank you!
