Wednesday Muse

Morning all
I'm a bit out of sequence this week as I'm only just putting my card I made on Monday up now. I was out a lot on Monday taking a friend to hospital., not Di this time so was catching up with scheduled posts on Monday. It was a lovely day for sitting around waiting in the shade admiring the view, didn't feel like a hospital car park at all! Anyway here is the card I made for the Muse #73 challenge.


I seem to be in rainbow mode but this was based on this gorgeous card by this weeks guest Muse, Beverley Brown.


I was inspired by the butterflies and jewel colours she used to colour them. I checked through my stash of butterfly stamps but wasn't inspired then went for my Memory Box dies again. I've been enjoying playing with taking out and replacing die cuts to create one layer so I played again using sparkly filigree butterflies where I had cut away the plain shape. I coloured the base card underneath with copics to match. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
I shall also enter the following challenges:-
ATSM - Anything goes
CAS on Sunday -  Birthday
Seize the Birthday - Anything goes - with no topping
Crazy For CAS - Stencilling 
( I used the top layer as a stencil for colouring the butterflies underneath!)

OK, that's a wrap, must make the most of the last sunny day and get the washing out! 
See you back soon.
