MUSE Challenge #1

I love a good challenge blog, and I just joined this new one called MUSE, a Card Making Club. The idea is to create a project based on the inspiration card using only stuff from your stash. So when I got the first inspiration photo from MUSE I figured that a card for Princess P's tea party would be the perfect place to start. I used the photo as a sketch, matching my proportions to the original card. I'm also linking this card to Make It Monday on an Original Belle and to ABC Challenges - Birthday Cards.
I used some scraps from Pear and Partridge (sadly, sold out) along with a cuttlebug embossed panel from my red scrap bin. I added this green Cricut scroll from my bowl of random extra Cricut cuts. Am I the only one who does that? I cut a few extra just in case, then I end up with a bowl of extra Cricut cuts just hanging around waiting for just the right project. I also added some flowers I had gotten for like $1 somewhere, maybe Joanns...anyhow, forever ago. I covered the original not-so-pretty flower center with Stardust Glitter Glitz and Red sparkles. 

The whole card took me less than ten minutes, and Gabe could not wait to give it to Princess P at the party. My boys all dressed up for the party in their own ways - button up shirt (Gabe), Tie applique T-shirt with snappy colorblock cardigan (Ben), and sweater vest combo (Max). At least no one insisted on going dressed in their superhero jammies!

I get another box 'o new goodies tomorrow (hooray!!), so more sneak peeks will be coming soon!

Wendy, I love your card! You can also enter it in ABC Challenges... They are doing birthday cards this week! Do you remember the cart the flourishes came from? I keep a stash of extra cricut cuts too! Thanks for sharing you talent! The flowers are a great touch on your card :) Kathi

Thanks, Kathi! The flourish is from Art Philosophy - it looks like a corner, I just cut it apart to make it fit where I needed it!
