Muse Challenge #12





Sharing a card for this week's Muse challenge.  Terese Calvird is our Monday Muse and she shared this beautiful spring card.  




This week I kept my design pretty literal focusing on the purple and the design.  Really for me it is any chance i have to pull out and play with Rosie Posie.  My large rose was stamped with Lavender Moon but I rolled my Winter Wisteria ink pad around the bottom of the flower to add some depth.  I am also sharing this card with this week's Simon Says Challenge April Showers and/or Spring Flowers.






All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White
Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Rosie Posie (PTI)  Flower Friends (Simon Says Stamps)
Ink:  Lavender Moon, Winter Wisteria, Simply Chartreuse, True Black
Dies: Rosie Posie
other: foam tape

Brilliant take on Therese's card, Tracey!!

I'm short on time, so I hope you will forgive me for not leaving comments on all your individual posts, but I have just had the best time scrolling down over the last few days and the marvelous cards I have missed. I've sopped up most of the drool and my keyboard is now okay to type on again.

(Note to self: do NOT miss more than two days in a row of Tracey's posts!!)
