Muse flowers

Hi there,
I'm typing here & feeling a little embarrassed. I started this blog with good intentions a few years ago & haven't written any posts for almost 2 years now.

... but I've kept on making cards & playing with ink, stamps, paper, paints, crayons ... and I've kept checking card and craft challenge blogs.  I discovered the Muse blog in the weekend and decided to give it a go.

I love the idea of being able to take the inspiration I choose from a muse card and Anita Bowden's strong, bright card for challenge #206 led me to this.

I took the colours and geometric shapes of Anita's card and combined them with an old Craft Stamper stamp I've had for a few years now.
I was going to use a white card blank to frame it ... but my family voted for the blue, and it does make the pink and orange pop.
I loved the pink orange & black colour combination and plan to experiment with it further.
Now I need to get it loaded before the deadline :-)
Cheers, Dianne
