Muse Challenge #2

 
 
 
Today I thought I'd try out a new challenge blog called Muse. 
Hop on over and check it out.
You need to create a card using their selected muse as your, well, your Muse. 
 
So here's the inspiration that I drew from this fabulous card by Suzanne Dahlberg.  First I looked at the colour palette and found this fantastic paper from Crate Paper.  Some of the colours are different, but most of them are the same as in her sample.    I started to copy the layout of her card, and realized that I actually didn't want to COPY her card, but be INSPIRED by it, so I reversed the layout and put the sentiment on the top and the images on the bottom.  I also was inspired by her "XOXO" sentiment and made a Valentine's Day Card.

Love how you've used hearts in place of flowers!

Great card! I thought of doing a grouping of hearts, but ended up with flowers. I'm going to remember this as I still have some Valentines to complete.

Sandra! I never would have thought to reverse my layout, but I love the effect! Isn't Crate Paper just the best, too? Thanks so much for finding inspiration in my card!
