Thinking of You...Muse #81

Hello again...catching up on cards and posts before we head off to Banff for a bit. A bit of a stroll, shops to duck into when the rains fall...a change of scenery.

I'm sharing my card for Muse Challenge #81


My wild paper, in a small dose, reflects the colourful chevrons in Marion's pretty, glittery card, as does the embossed background. Like hers, my butterfly is triple-layered:  two layers of vellum atop a pink layer; add a white inked sentiment, a couple of pink sparkles ...and voila.  Done.  More thinking involved than doing *grin*


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

LOVE that geometric paper - it's the perfect amount (in my CAS opinion!) it really stands out without taking over. So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

Gorgeous take on Marion's card Carol. Love the subtle chevron background and then the hit of DP.
Hope you had a good time in Banff, which I presume is the Canadian not the Scottish one as it's a bit far to go for a bit of R n R !
Its the Bank Holiday here and it's piddling down so hubby is catching up on jobs while supervise!
Well done with your recent wins, you deserved it. x

Tell me this won top prize. Because if it didn't, something has gone wrong. WRONG!!! OMG this is SO pretty! Love how the paper plays off of the colours in the inspiration card and I adore how the softness of the butterfly balances the paper perfectly! A complete stunner!
