Muse Challenge #239

Lately, I've been finding that work is getting in my way. So, I've decided that life is too short and it's time to retire. Hoping then, I'll have time for crafting. I haven't had time to play along with the gang at Muse Card Club. I check in every week, am inspired but never seem to find time to create the card. This week, it's different - I found some time to craft.

Here's the great Muse card by Stephanie Lanzalotto

Here's my card

I was inspired by:
- general layout/card sketch
- colours
- gold embossed graphic flowers

I started by inking up the background panel with distress inks (ripe persimmon, mustard seed, twisted citron, seedless preserves, tea dye). I then stamped the oak leaf from Newton's Nook Beautiful Leaves stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed the gold embossing powder. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP Flower Friend stamp set. The sentiment and mat were die cut using Spellbinders Label 1 dies. Finished the card with some black and white baker's twine, tied in a bow.

Thanks for visiting
