Muse Challenge #198

Hello friends, I've been nursing a flu/cold this week and feeling a bit sorry for myself! 

First day back at work on Monday and I managed until lunchtime!
The best medicine EVER and to add a little cheer is a mooch around blogland! 

My fellow teamie and bestie at Less is More (Anita) is this week's MUSE
and I love the blend of colours she'd used with added texture to the circle
on her card then WOAH! that sentiment strip pops one heck of a punch so
I had to have a little play. It was a really quick card to make and I feel much
better today! Thanks Neets!

Here's my card with Anita's inspirations below

I started out with a handful of Distress Inks and blended them over a piece of card stock -
 I think this part has Blueprint Sketch, Spun Sugar, Peacock Feathers and Seedless 
Preserves on it. I couldn't resist the little flick and spritz of water and perfect pearls.
Using a heart stax from WPlus9 to die-cut my shape I then ran it back through the 
big-shot using one of the WeR Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folders 
(from Santa!) To finish a bold sentiment from Lil'Inkers and a few sequins.

I hope you like how I've interpreted Anita's card and thanks so 
much for calling by my blog today.

  3. Gorgeous take on Anita's card, Sarah! Your heart is so pretty, and I love the added texture with your embossing folder, and the spritz of water and perfect pearls is just that ~ "Perfect"!
