Muse Challenge #3

Here is a card I made for this week's Muse Challenge. For this one, I decided to go back to my favourite style of classical shabby chic. Information for Muse Challenges can be found here.

The inspiration card was designed by Laurie Willison and I especially liked the format with the split foreground, which is why this featured in my card.

The band across the centre holds the design together which is why I also featured a variation of this.

I used : 
  • flowers from Little Birdie
  • the bird stamp from Kaisercraft's Periwinkle Birds stamp set
  • the sentiment from Couture Creations' Words, Words, Words Stamp Collection
  • papers from Crate Paper, Basic Grey and DCWV
  • Copic markers
  • Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad
  • Kaisercraft cream lace
  • a Prima flower
  • Manor House leaves
  • assorted cardstock, ribbons and trim from stash
I'll be back again soon.

Bye for now,

    1. Thanks so much Dawn. I chose the blog title because it is me - just a dash of flash, but not too flashy! I usually add some bling to my cards, so they're the same. I'm so glad you're now a follower. I hope you enjoy yourself reading my blog and that I can inspire you sometimes.
