Muse 137

  Playing cards with my friend 
Michele Ferguson today, via the latest Muse challenge!  Her card provides cute patterned paper typewriters and fun sentiments!  Just a darling card!
The typewriters and colours really inspired me and I found the stamp I had in mind, gold embossed on vellum and then trimmed out.  I cut out a pink PTI frame and layered her onto it and added a punched out pink ribbon.  The sentiment is from a beautiful and favourite Verve set "Believe" that I heat embossed with a creamy pearl finish EP.  The textured card front was layered with an acrylic patterned overlay and I hand stitched two of the corners with a pink silk thread.
Hope that you like this one, Michele!  


  1. love this take on Michele's card, fabulous texture and that touch of stitching the perfect finishing touch x

  2. Like? Oh that would be an understatement, Chriss!! I LOve it ... the pink is perfect, as is your HAND stitching? Gorgeous overlay - it is a fab stand-in for my patterned paper! Well done you... and thanks so much for playing cards with me at Muse!!!
