Muse Challenge #92

Happy Sunday to you all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I made a card inspired by the Muse this week "Vicky Dutcher". This is her card

and here is my take on it

Stamps: Simon Says Stamp (birthday)
Dies: PTI (Headline Alphabet)
Other: Cuttlebug (embossing folder), Marco's Paper (silver cardstock), Distress Inks

I still love to use embossing folders as background stamps with distress inks spritzed with water! Cut out the HAPPY with my NBUS dies from PTI from matte silver cardstock, embossed the birthday in silver, mounted the panels on foam tape and really liked the result! Hope you do, too! It's always good to have some guy cards ready, right? (Although if someone would send me a similar card I would be delighted. Even though I love flowers, butterflies, bling, etc. I also like this type of cards.)

Help me give a warm welcome to my new follower Karren J. from "Karren J - Stamping Stuff"
Why don't you visit her blog, let yourself be inspired by her wonderful cards and leave her some love?
Karren, my welcome quote for you is from Wassily Kandinsky:

Color is a power which directly influences the soul.

Thank you for becoming a follower! I also want to thank everybody who has signed up to get my posts through email and all of you visitors! Hope you continue to like what you see here!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, Susanne and what an appropriate quote as color is the first thing that draws me in :) This is a beautiful card - love the pattern of color against that soft background. PS: Thanks also for following my blog.

Susanne, your take on Vicki's card is BRILLIANT! The embossing, the colours, the shimmery eye-catching! I think you should waltz it over to Inkspirational Challenges, where 'shine' is the current invitation! Yours totally fits the requirement!
