Muse Card Challenge #100

IMG_7335


Happy 100th challenge and Happy Birthday Muse!
How could I not play along for this special challenge.

This is also the first time since joining the design team that Michele Ferguson is the hostess with this card!




I am in love with my newest Distress Ink--Ripe Persimmon. I started with white cardstock and inked up a patch large enough for the heart die and oh my, it's gorgeous! Such an awesome rich tone. Michele's gorgeous card was inspired by a song and my card is as well. A little Nat King Cole for you today and a very CAS card. Call me old fashioned but my hubby and I love classic music like this. I am pretty sure I just made his Valentine card.

I am linking my card up to Darnell's  NBUS Challenge #3 for the Ripe persimmon ink.




I am also linking this up to Uniko Studio's Challenge #17 Love and Friendship!
