Muse #81

Evening all.
Its been a pretty mixed day here weather wise, torrential rain, hot sun, strong winds and a chilly evening. Looking around at some of the trees you would be forgiven for thinking it was autumn already!

When I saw this week's Muse card by Marion Vagg I just fell in love with it and had to have a go. I've not played the last couple of weeks so here goes.

It follows Marion's card pretty well but it was so good I didn't feel I could alter much.

However as I didn't have any chevron stamps I used my Die- Namics chevron dies in glorious ice cream shades of glitter card. All accept the green which I had to make using some pale green glitter on a white chevron.
I used plain old copy paper for the Memory Box butterfly, cutting four layers and added three tiny iridescent  sequins for it's body. The chevrons were glued to a panel and then popped up on pads. The sentiment was heat embossed on some black card.
I should also like to enter the Tic Tac Toe challenge at CAS-ual Fridays before it closes!

I went straight across the top with Chevrons, black and sequins.

OK thanks for popping around, see you back again soon.
