I've been wanting to play along at the MUSE challenge for a few weeks now,
but I don't 'do' flowers.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE flower/botanical cards, but they are my nemesis.
This week's card by Anita was so pretty I had to give it a try, but with ninjas :-)
I've followed the overall design of Anita's card, and tried to stick to similar colours.
The sentiment was the tricky bit for me.
I inked a line of pink on some card, and then die cut my 'birthday'.
Then, for extra dimension I stuck it to a 'birthday' die-cut from foam sheet.
Lastly, I used a glue pen on the bottom of the letters and sprinkled on some glamour dust. (Much prettier than this photo captures).
To attach it, I die-cut the sentiment from my ninja panel, covered the back of the aperture with ds tape, and then pressed my sentiment into the space.
AND, I've now ordered what I'm hoping are easy peasy flower/leaf stamps,
so watch this space :-)
