Muse Challenge #14



Hello friends,

Hope your having a fabulous weekend so far. The sun should be shinning and the temperatures nice this weekend for us. Hopefully, I will be able to do a little yard work and bring the patio furniture out. I can't wait to be able to sit on the patio with a nice glass of white wine and a good book in the evenings.

I had a few minutes this morning to make a card for the latest Muse Challenge #14. The muse this week is Virginia Lu. Her card is so cute. I was inspired by the various flowers, sentiment as a focal point and addition of pearl embellishments.

I wanted to try the mask technique for my flowers to make sure there was enough white space for my sentiment to stand out as the focal point, similar to Virginia's card. Although I chose a different color scheme, I kept with the flower images and added a touch of dot embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!
Brandi
