Muse #24, Color Throwdown #249, Simon Says: Patriotic, & Stacey's Birthday Linky Party
I haven't played along with a Muse Challenge in a long time, so I decided to use that as my main inspiration today. The things that stood out to me on Laurie's card were the embossed wood background, the row of buttons with the black X's in the middle, and the bold sentiment, so I incorporated those elements on my card. I wanted a different color scheme and since we've been in the patriotic mode this week, I chose this week's Color Throwdown as my inspiration. I love this color scheme, but the color is a bit off in the photo. IRL the middle button is much more teal...resembling the Bermuda Bay color. And although I was definitely going with a patriotic feel on this card for this week's Simon Says...Patriotic challenge, I used a birthday sentiment because we have a few family birthdays around the 4th of July that I needed to make cards for. Oh, and I'm linking this one up to Stacey's Birthday Linky Party...I'm super excited to see her newly re-created Curtain Call Challenge.
