Muse #40


I created this card after I saw the beautiful card below designed by the very talented and incredibly funny... Darnell Knauss, who just happens to be this week's guest designer/muse for the current
 MUSE #40 Challenge.

Darnell Kraus


Darnell's card is not only gorgeous, but you must visit her blog and read the post that goes with it! She was so inspirational! I was inspired by the flowers and the colors of the card. 
I wanted to incorporate some vellum. I have recently been seeing lots of vellum being used on different projects, which I think is beautiful! So...I thought I would give it a try.

First I made my background paper by stamping blooms and leaves on white card stock in pink and green. Next I stamped the same blooms on vellum and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I attached this to the background paper with some glue dots. I was a little nervous that the glue dots may show thru, but they didn't! Whew!


I then added a sentiment. I thought this card would be perfect for a wedding card!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Mackie
