Muse #40 Believe

Saturday once again!
I am crafting up a storm today...all day long!  I made this card for Darnell's challenge over at MUSE, #40.  She is the featured MUSE this week and I only very recently came to know about Darnell's blog and craftiness.
I knew that I wanted to use the same colours and some velum as seen in Darnell's wonderful inspiration card.  I set off making all kinds of velum borders and arrangements, but they were not speaking to me, so, I chose this simpler approach to let the sentiment be center stage.  It is from Verve's "Believe" set from a couple of years ago.  The flower from the same set is stamped in craft white ink on SU's Pink Pirouette and heat embossed then fussy cut.  I don't have a lot of choices when it comes to pink...but I think this pink is a perfect soft shade.  The Memory Box Lavalier Circle was cut from pink velum and adds even more of a feminine and soft touch (imho).  I added a couple of green leaves made with the My Favorite Things Branch and leaves die cut set.  I finished it off with a punched pink ribbon, the universal recognizable symbol.
Here is a close-up of the focal area.
Thanks for popping in for a visit and I hope that you are having a great Saturday!


  1. So soft and pretty - love the embellishments and the pops of gredn! Thanks so much for joining us at Muse this week, Chriss!

  2. Oh, my, Chriss, this is really speaking to me, too! What a perfect card in tribute to BCA!! I love the background embossing and the full-on beautiful focal point, punctuated by the iconic ribbon. I'm not sure how many people noticed the green BCA ribbon I tucked into the stems on my card, so kudos to you for making it a design feature on your card! Thank you so much for the compliment of CASEing my card for MUSE!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Hello Chriss, you have a hit making that sentiment the focal point of your card. Often, that sentiment is what pulls us through the hard times.

  4. Your card is so pretty and I love all the little details:) It is such a lovely sentiment too - hugs xx

  5. Love the way you used vellum in your design along with the metal flower - stunning card!

  6. Love using a sentiment for the focal point & you've done it beautifully!

  7. So very pretty Chriss ... Your flower is stunning ... Thanks so much for your kind words too ...

  8. Thanks for your kind comments on my Muse card. Yours is really lovely. Soft and serene. Love the embossed panel with the rounded corners, and especially love the label shape with its sentiment. Bev

  9. What a beautiful card, Chriss!

    I wanted to stop by and thank you for the lovely comment you left on my final Moxie Fab World blog post. I had such an incredibly good time in the Moxie Fab World, and I'm so glad I got to know you there! I have *so appreciated* all the love and support you have given me over the years, and I am so glad that we are friends. Hugs and loves to you, my oh-so-moxie fab friend! :)
