Muse 148 - Thank you


I've been working on this card all week. It's for this week's Muse challenge, where Anita has given us this pretty and very (VERY) CAS inspiration:


My usual plan of attack when CASing someone's card is to CAS-ify it. But there was really no where to go on this one! So I had to rethink. And again. And again.

I focused on Anita's:
-horizontal strip
-colour combination

I used a vine-like Avery Elle sentiment from Oh Happy Day. I added the simple flowers from the same set to add the pops of colour.

Haha! I love that you had trouble CASEing Anita's card because it was already super-CAS. :-) Your card is gorgeous, and definitely a great CASE.

I like the white-on-white. The slight shadow that the focal panel has gives just a hint of Anita's black. Love the AE sentiment, and those two pretty flowers. CAS perfection. Have a great weekend dear friend! Bev
