Muse #56 (Lisa Haines), CAS-ual Fridays #129 (Shades of Grey) SSS Wednesday 27/2 (Anything Goes With Pearls), SSS Monday 3/3 (Tick Tock)

This is my second post of the day … a simple one layer card …

Muse 56, CAS-ual Fridays 129, SSSW 27-2, SSSM 3-3

Lisa from The Purple Place is Guest Designer this week at Muse … and she’s given us such a pretty card as inspiration … of course using purple (see below)!  I focused on the colour, the three images and the lines above and below the sentiment.  CAS-ual Fridays has just been revamped, reformatted and relaunched with a new and jaw droppingly awesome Design Team … we’re playing with Shades of Grey (at least two) this month.   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday has an Anything Goes With Pearls theme this week, so I’m joining in there … and also at Simon Says Stamp Monday‘s Tick Tock challenge, where we have time as our inspiration (the images here are dandelion clocks and the sentiment’s about moments in time).

These blooms are from Clearly Besotted … I was lucky enough to win a voucher at the last blog hop and hung on to spend it till the release last month.  The bigger images are stamped in Memento’s Lulu Lavender, over-stamped in London Fog (grey) and I added some pearls to the centres.  The Hero Arts sentiment is stamped in Grey Flannel and the double lines top and bottom are the flower stem stamped horizontally to ground the image and frame the words.

That’s it for me for today … five cards in less than 24 hours … phew … I’m very grateful to Monsieur Mojo for staying so long.  Looking forward to a meander around blogland later to see what everyone’s been creating … and be inspired!  Thanks so much for coming by, as ever, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    GORGEOUS! I knew you’d use that well-deserved voucher to buy some amazing products and, in turn, delight us with your creations! LOVE the dandelions, especially in the beautiful shades of purple, and complimenting grey, you’ve chosen. The pearls: perfect special touch! I’m waiting for this set to be restocked – missed it the first AND second go-round! Fingers crossed it will appear soon; my CB wish list is ever sooooooo long! Hugs~c
