Muse #20





Sharing a card for this week's Muse challenge.  Hard to believe that it is challenge #20!
This week's Muse is Laurie Willison.  Whenever I see one of Laurie's card I wish that I had created one just like it or this.




The toughest thing for me to overcome when she is the Muse is to NOT make my card exactly the way that she did.  To stop myself from downright copying her, but I could never make a bow as perfect as she does. LOL  So how did I make it my own? Well it wasn't easy.  I loved the design, the colours, the scoring and the bow.  Desperately wanting the hot weather to arrive I decided that I wanted to create my card with the same colours but more vibrant and summery.  So I created a one layer card using Hawaiian Shores for my base, I stuck to colours only, no white.  I made a trio of sunshine rather than medallions and I used grosgrain instead of saddle stitch ribbon. 





Cardstock:  Hawaiian Shore, Harvest Gold (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Flippin' Out (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: True Black (Papertrey Ink)
Dies: sunshine (Lil' Inkers)
other: Orange Zest grosgrain Ribbon, Scoring tool
