My First Muse

One of my New Year's Resolution was to participate in some challenges and put some of my cards out there.  Muse is a Weekly Challenge that I joined and I am posting my first card for the Muse Challenge.  The inspiration for this card:

I loved the idea of Something simple in the middle and a design trailing off.  I kept the design idea the same, colored in my flowers with Stampin' Blends and Copics, but rotated the card.

Here is my take on this beautiful card by Anita Bowden:

  1. I love the style of those flowers and the simple colouring - this is a gorgeous card, Suzanne and I'm thrilled you're keeping your resolution! Looking forward to seeing more of your work at Muse! Thanks for joining us this week!

  2. So glad you were inspired by my card and to play along. Love those blooms and that Rich Razzleberry was a gorgeous choice for this design.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Muse, Anita x

  3. Such great use of colour palette! Despite being a simple card, it emanates strength for the recipient. :)

  4. Lovely interpretation of Anita's Muse card. I love the switch to a mostly white card, yet incorporating a super rich color as a mat. Great clean and simple card. Love it.

    1. Thank you! It seemed a bit extreme, so much white and the dark color, but it's growing on me.
