Delicate Doilies

I haven't been able to play with the MUSE challenge lately.  This is not what I intended to do when I started out.  But I'm going to take it over there anyway.


Here is the MUSE card.  It's by the very talented Deanna Jean. 


I wanted to go with similar colors so I picked Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple with some Gumball Green.  I wasn't crazy with the green so I went over some of the "leaves" with a Lucky Limeade marker.  I do like the effect.

I really wanted to break away a little bit more from the same overall design.  But the design is so perfect it was hard to change much.

It looks so much like other cards in the gallery so evidently they felt the same way about Deanna Jean's card.  And this sits in some very talented company.

It wasn't what I was aiming for, but I've got to say that I really like it.

I hope you'll go over to Muse this afternoon and vote on your favorites.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

I'm so happy your mojo took over and took you to this card instead of whatever you were aiming for. I mean, don't get me wrong, whatever you were aiming for would have been awesome, but this? This is MORE awesome! Well done, Bonnie!!
