The Muse

Good morning!
Another week gone by and the weekend awaits...

I've been able to spend a fair bit of time creating this week and today I have a card for 

Anita Bowden is this week's Muse and this is her beautiful card


Here's my take...


I focused on the flowers and the design ... and I've rediscovered my love of paper piecing which is great for using up scraps!


Once again I'm using Wplus9 Doodle Buds ... I just adore this set and you can probably tell that some of those scrap papers are years old!
I used an SU punch to cut out a window for my sentiment just as an extra twist


Ok that's me for today ... I'm hoping that the weather will brighten up later and I can drag myself away from my little room ... 

Wishing you a beautiful day

Your paper piecing is a really great way to introduce textures and colours, another beauty, Ros. Hope that your weather is bright!

Wow...another beautiful card created with those fun stamps!! Clever idea for the sentiment window as well. You know I have a ton of punches and neglect them badly due to all the dies out there...you might have prodded me to pull some out!
