Hello … bonjour … hope your weekend has been wonderful! I’m popping in with a card inspired by a few challenges … notably Muse, where my lovely friend, Michele has posted her last card as a DT member (the delicious one at the bottom). How could I not take this final opportunity to be inspired and play cards along with her there? This one’s for you, Michele … thanks so much for all the fun, energy and enthusiasm you’ve put into Muse … I’ll miss you there … but know you’ll still be keeping us inspired at your blog and wherever you may travel across blogland!
I kept to a similar layout as Michele, using a little glassine envelope instead of a vellum pocket … and creating a tiny shaker … with various shades of golden hued sequins to support the trimmed out sun peeking out of the top. The ‘sunshine’ was die cut, sponged with a little Distress Ink to give it some umph, and attached flat to the card/envelope. I stamped the supplementary sentiments in grey and added lots of Wink of Stella to the sun. Stamps and die are all from SSS. How about a detail shot of the shimmer …
I mentioned that a number of other challenges also inspired my card … here’s the full house …
Muse – Michele … one final, fabulous time!
CAS Mix Up – Stamping, Die Cuts plus Choice … mine’s the glassine shaker envelope (it’s not listed as an option, Loll and Bonnie, but I hope it’ll count for adding dimension!)
CASology – Sunshine … really wanted to play last week for the 200th anniversary, it just wasn’t possible, so I’m making up for it with number 201!
Happy Little Stampers Dies – Anything Goes … only started last month and did you see the gallery … this month’s is equally amazing already!
SSS Work it Wednesday – Sunshine … my first entry
You may have noticed there’s been a bit of a gap in my visits around blogland … technical hitches that have now (hopefully!) been resolved, including having to confirm I’m not a robot more times than I care to count! I’m almost back on track … then normal service (hahaha … I should probably say usual!) will be resumed! Have a splendid week … thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
