This is already the 40th challenge at the Muse Card Club where everyone can vote for their three favorite entries but it's the first time for me to play! But how could I not? This week's muse is the one and only Darnell and not only did she provide a beautiful card to inspire us but also wrote a thought provoking post. Take some time and read it here. So how could I not make a card? First Darnell's inspiration:
And here is my card:
I wanted to use torn paper, not only because I love the look of it (at one time I was know amongst my stamping friends for the torn paper look) and hadn't used it in a while but also because of the symbolism that Darnell wrote about in her post. The vellum I used once covered some chocolates and I just couldn't throw it out. It is not wrinkled like it looks on the photo but has a pattern on it. (Wish I would remember which chocolates they were...)
Have a great weekend and hope you take some time to create something, maybe even for the Muse challenge...
