Merry Muse



Hi there!  Usually I don't get around to making a card for the Muse challenge until the last minute but Vicki Dutcher's bright and cheery card totally inspired me on Monday so I broke out a stencil and some Distress Inks and got straight to work.  I love the fun polka dots and big sentiment on Vicki's card so that's what I focused on for mine.  I used three colours of Distress Inks for the dots and my current favourite Gumball Green cardstock from Stampin' Up.  Mom called it a "funky, modern kind of Christmas card".  I was chuffed with that description but I don't think it was a compliment.  LOL!  Mom likes a more classic style...  :D  





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Gumball Green, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Inks:  (Barn Door, Fired Brick & Aged Mahogany Distress Inks) Ranger
Dies:  (Merry from Holiday Fill in the Blank) Avery Elle, (Christmas) Paper Smooches
Stencil:  (Dots) Stampin' Up
Sequins:  Doodlebug
