Is anyone else struggling to find time to craft?
With the weather being so nice here, I have been spending more time in the garden -
drinking tea and reading books in the sun, whilst trying to ignore the weeds ;-)

Anita's beautiful Muse card has been in my head though,
and I finally came up with this card yesterday.

I don't have any stencils, so for my image, I used rose and leaf stamps,
stamped with versamark and heat embossed in white.
Then I used my distress inks over the top for the background, added a sentiment and a few scattered sequins.

It seems so simple, I don't know why it took me a week to come up with it ;-)

Great interpretation of Anita's Muse card. The colors you've used are beautifully rich.

Although the garden is a lovely place to be I'm so glad my card inspired you to find some crafty time. And I love the negative pattern with your embossed roses and vibrant colour.
Thanks so much for playing along at Muse this week, Anita x

gosh - beautiful card - but isn't it always the way, you spend ages coming up with what seems to be, in retrospect, a simple idea ... like all creative work you don't get credit for the thinking time :-)
