Muse 147

Playing cards with Michele today with her Muse post!

I am making Valentine's Day cards and had the perfect card... in my head.  
It's a little skunk with a sentiment that says "I stink I LOVE you" and I knew Michele would get a kick out of this.  Guess what...she is missing :(
So, I had to come up with something else.  I knew that I was inspired by the use of patterned paper and the stitched oval so I pulled out my stitched circles (no stitched ovals here) and black heat embossed this old SU mouse with Happy Heart Day sentiment onto my water colour die cut and painted with KTGansai paints, except for the green.  It is sparkly and from an inexpensive set from Michael's.  The patterned paper is an ode to Michele's popcorn...doesn't  it remind you of the popping motion?  I must say, I had a lot of fun making these, even though I couldn't find my little stinker skunk!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is super!
