Muse #11 & Simon Says Happy Birthday





This week's Muse card is by Laurie Willison of Soapbox Creations.  




It took everything in my power not to outright CASE her gorgeous card exactly.  However, what I did do was chose what I liked the most.  The card orientation, the basic design and the inverted die cut.  Here is what I came up with.




I am also submitting this card to Simon Says Happy Birthday Challenge.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White
Patterned Paper: Hawaiian Shores Collection Pack
Stamps: 2012 Birthday Tags, Background Basics: Circles
Ink:  Hawaiian Shores, True Black
Dies: Limitless Layers Oval
other: foam dots, heart punch

Beautiful and fun. You are so good at getting inspired, but not exactly casing. I need to get better at that. Love the circles behind the focal point, and that heart is such a cute touch.

Tracey, your circle stamp is fabulous and I love the contrast between that beautiful blue and the black dots, stunning! I agree with Joyce and need to improve in that same area, you just hit the ground running and do amazing things.
