I have a couple of cards to share today. The first is for the Muse Challenge #16 where the Monday Muse is Laurie Willison and this card.
Teacher Thank You cards are high on the "to do" list right now, so Laurie's card was the perfect inspiration for me today. I really copied the basic design of the card and the main elements using a library card stamp to create my sentiment panel and an inked wooden ruler piece (Maya Road) and ribbon from my stash.
This card ended up being very thick, but thankfully teacher cards are hand delivered!
My second card for today is based on this one from Maile Belles, the current Muse at the CASE Study Challenge.
I started with a kraft base, but it wasn't working for me so quickly moved to Soft Stone card stock. The Memory Box flourishes and Tim Holtz/Sizzix flowers are cut from the reverse sides of Authentique patterned paper.
A Paptertrey Ink tag & sentiment finishes off the card.
I might be pushing it a bit, but since one of my favorite things about the embossing folder I used is the little birds, I am going to link this up to the Simon Says . . . Things With Wings challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
Thanks for stopping by,
