Muse Card Challenge #40

IMG_2881




When I saw that Darnell was the Muse for this week's Muse Challenge I knew I had to play along with my friend.  I haven't played in quite a while, but then again last summer vanished didn't it?  This is the gorgeous card that we had for our inspiration:




I was inspired by the beautiful tall flower of Darnell's card and I wanted to ink up my, new to me, Papertrey Meadow Greens stamps.
