Muse #13





This week we had a beautiful card from Marion Vagg for the Muse challenge.




I was drawn to the card orientation and the pink and purple.  As I post this card news has hit the air waves that Boston police have the suspect in custody.  Now the healing can begin.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White
Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Lovely Layers (PTI)  Fanfare (Avery Elle)
Ink:  Winter Wisteria, Plum Pudding, Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, New Leaf (PTI) Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsuikineko)
Dies: Lovely Layers
other: foam tape

Gorgeous use of the Lovely Layers stamps and die cuts, Tracey. Just warning you that it's very likely that I will need to CASE this one sometime. If you don't mind. ;-) Beautiful! It has definitely been a miserable week in the news. Grateful they have found the second suspect and that many more people have not been hurt throughout the manhunt.
