Blue and white Muse

Afternoon all, thanks for stopping by.
I've been looking at this week's Muse card by Marion Vagg all week trying to come up with a suitable entry.
Problem was that my stock of dark blue card is limited and my choice of border stamps also. In the end I settled on this entry -



and this is Marion's card


As you can see I went with my diecuts, inlaying a white MB Tessatina border then adding some Marianne flourishes and a MB butterfly. I left off a sentiment just as Marion did but added a few blue sparkles on the body of the butterfly.


This is the same card from a different angle. The card was a pearlescent finish and a bit tricky to photograph but it does show the inlay better than the first.
I didn't go with the heart theme as I'm all Valentined out at the moment, I've got quite a collection of them now if anybody wants them!
Anyhow that's about it for the moment, see you back here soon for some more exciting news.

  3. I think that's really pretty mum. Reminds me of one of my old dancing costumes! Do you know the one I mean?
