Less is More meets Muse

Good morning all.
I meant to post this yesterday but time just flew away! (The winds were quite strong here last night but happily not as bad as in Scotland and the North of England.)


As the title of this posts suggests, it's a fusion of two challenges, Muse and Less is More.
This is the Muse card from Vicki Dutcher.


I was inspired by the central words, dots aperture, gold and the colours, well pretty much everything really! 
When I first saw this Muse card I thought I knew what I was doing as I have this MB die but then I thought that the word love deserved a heart, and my large LOVE die didn't really fit the opening of the circle burst.
I embossed a panel of white card then inked it in Festive Berries DI before cutting out the large love word, then cut out the heart using my Little B hearts die. I searched the stash for some gold sequins but couldn't find any, could have sworn I had some left over from Nich's dancing costume making days! Anyway, I improvised with some shaped gold mirror card tiny punched circles. I was going to pop the panel on white but tried it on black and it was a much richer effect so stuck with that and added a white die cut 'you' from a Spellbinders set.
As I said at the beginning the card was also inspired by the colour challenge at 
Less is More - Black, metallic and one other, this being red!

OK, that's about it. I should take Max out for a walk soon before that wind gets up some more and blows us up the drive!

  5. LOVE this - they way the LOVE die cut fills the heart - and the sequins add just the right amount of bling!
