Muse #10, Less is More #112 (Beads)

When I saw that my ultra talented friend Ardyth was the muse this week at Muse Card Club, my heart did a little jump for joy … delighted that she was providing the inspiration this week and then completely bowled over by the delectable circles card she created for us.  Happiness was definitely in the air because over at Less is More, the inspirational Chrissie and Jen have given us ‘Beads’ to play with … and in my mind, beads go beautifully with circles … don’t you love it when that happens?

Here’s Ardyth’s inspiration …

stunning isn’t it?  This is my take on it …

Muse 10, LIM 112

As some of you know, I love circles … so there are circles everywhere here …. colour bases, cut out panel, concentric pattern, embossing and the tiny beads, even the corners are rounded!  There was so much happiness in the air whilst I was creating it, that’s the sentiment I chose.  It reminds me of those little enclosed maze puzzles we had as children where you had to get the ball bearing into the centre hole … they were always fiendishly tricky … happily, this card wasn’t!

Off to do some blog browsing to enjoy what everyone else has created for these two fun challenges this week … thanks so much for coming by, I really appreciate your visits and comments.  Anita 🙂

    “I’m so dizzy, my head is spinning, like a whirlpool, it never stops…and it’s your cards girl, makin’ it spin….” Anybody else out there remember Tommy Roe (who may have written this song while in rehab???)

    Sorry, I digress…it’s just that these fabulous circles have my head spinning with delight. I just can’t help but follow the path to the center. Anita, this is just waaaay to clever…AGAIN!

    Love the colors and the swiss dot folder. Well done my friend 🙂

    I’ve been tilting my iPad to see if I can get those little beads to run round those circles! (too much vino tinto 😉 Great card, Anita, and great interpretation of the challenges.

    So. FUN! I love your circles (they’re my favourite too!) Having them off centre like that really adds to the movement and bouncy feeling! I’m so glad you played along, my friend!

    Oh my Gosh! Every week I look so forward to seeing what card you will create for MUSE – I was also thrilled to see Ardyth’s card – wow! Your take is fantastic, I know I am going to have to case it – Haha -casing the case! Shirley B’s comment had me laughing because I was thinking the same thing! Wonderful card – I am so glad you played along.

    I’m sorry I’m SO late in visiting, but this last week was another of those which simply got away from me before I knew where it had gone!
    This is super, I love those concentric circles.
    Thanks so much

    YAY, I see congrats are in order for your well-deserved card! Those puzzles always drove me NUTS! There would always be some manufacturing defect that would make it impossible to get all the balls back into their recessed homes. Happily, I can look at your wonderfully graphic card and not have to go through that torture : )

  13. Geri G

    Whoo Hooo! Congratulations Anita! The MUSE voters sure know how to choose an awesome card when they see one! Such a well deserved shout out – your card had fabulous colors happening, a way to cool design idea and perfectly executed!
