Muse #7

Ahhhhh.  Here I am in crafty land – all is right with the universe now!  😉

I’ve wanted to join in with the Muse Card Club challenge, and I have finally found time to create something for one of the challenges, #7 in particular.  You can see muse Laurie Willison’s gorgeous card here.

And this is the result of my inspiration from her card:


Actually, I love everything about every one of Laurie’s cards.  She is a permanent muse of mine. 😉  And my first reaction is to always just copy everything she does, piece for piece, because to me, her work is always perfection.  But I also wanted to make my own original card, too, so I went with my first response to the card, which was the colors.

When I first saw the photo, I thought the little polka-dot ribbon tag was navy blue in color.  Now that I’ve returned to view it again on the computer, it looks pretty darn black.

So, if you were wondering,… that is why I included some navy blue on my card – because my printer psyched me out again! LOL.


Anyway.  I really like these colors together, even if I did mislead myself a bit with the navy blue.  And I was happy to use some of my new and neglected supplies on it.  I am seriously using all kinds of neglected supplies around here! Wahoo!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 😉

Stamps:  Feel the Sun (Verve); Quilled Elegance (Papertrey Ink)
Paper/Cardstock:  White Cardstock (Xpedx); Classic Kraft, Enchanted Evening Cardstocks (PTI)
Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento); White (Martha Stewart Crafts); Copic Markers
Embellishments:  Rhinestones (Recollections); Melon Berry Ribbon (PTI)

  1. Good for you to use those neglected things, Ally! That’s my goal this year, too. I adore your very own original interpretation of Laurie’s MUSE card!! It has now joined Laurie’s card in my folder of faves for future CASEing!!

  2. What a pretty card you made for the Muse challenge. I know what you mean about wanting to copy Laurie exactly. And, I like the navy blue!

  3. I’m glad you explained about the blue because I was wondering about that! I think this can be classified as a “happy accident” because this card is beautiful with the navy in it. Great interpretation!

  4. Beautiful card Ally, the navy and Melon Berry work so well together. I love all of Laurie’s cards and all of yours too. Those Lil’Inkers are fantastic!

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.
