Muse #71

Good morning peeps, just!
My daughter text me on the way home last night, could I make her a card for her friend who is moving house this weekend. Well I had been mulling the challenge over at Muse this week and thought I could have a go incorporating the two. 

I love'd this weeks Muse's card, it's by Therese Calvird.

I loved the bright colours and the repeated sentiment that was layered to be above the background but still be in the pattern. Now I have a slight problem here. I only have some old Ellison alphabet dies that have 2 letters on a die and no electronic cutting machine so I had to think laterally. So this is what I came up with.

The letters are Block Party and the paper NitWits Summer Splash, left over from the last project!
I cut a little house freehand and embellished it with a pearl. The background was embossed using a DoCrafts folder as I thought plain was too much of a contrast to the stripey paper.

I shall also enter the following challenges:-

Creative Inspirations - Bright Colours
