Muse Card Challenge #101


Hello blog buddies I'm sneaking in before I hit the sack with a 
card to enter the latest challenge at Muse.
As soon as I saw Marion's inspiring card I couldn't wait to enter
BUT my mojo upped and left and could I think of what to use!!!

Today I stumbled on this super duper floral stamp from 
Uniko Studio - Pure Florals: Gerbera
and this is what I came up with




I love the pop of striking blue cardstock on Marion's card so that 
was my starting point followed by heat-embossing the flower head, 
leaves and sentiment in Hero Arts white embossing powder.
Having added a touch of shading to the petals and leaves using 
Derwent Coloursoft pencils I finished with some mini gems 
for that touch of sparkle.

Ok that's all for me and I'll be back tomorrow with another card
for the Uniko Studio Love & Friendship Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you'll check out my card tomorrow
