Muse #128 ~ Happy!

Hey there! I hope everyone is doing well. I spent the day with my little Sweet P on Tuesday ~ I could just squeeze her!! While she napped I came across this week's Muse challenge. To my delight the new Muse is my sweetheart of a bloggy friend the fabulous Michele Ferguson! This is her pretty card where she has challenged us to use our favorite embossing folder.




Here is my take on her challenge!
As you can see I reversed the color from the sentiment to my focal image.


I am in love with this doily embossing folder by Maggie Holmes. Swoon worthy I tell ya!! After embossing my card with it, I also embossed a PTI  (Pretty Peonies) butterfly then positioned it to match the embossed spot on the card front. The sentiment (same PTI set) was stamped with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with clear powder.  To mimic Michele's metalic balloon tail I added PPP Sparkling Clear Sequins (6mm & 4mm).

And there you have it. Hope I did you proud Michele!! ~Lisa

This is just gorgeous. Brilliant idea to match up the embossing on the background and butterfly. I'll bet that took a while. Love your colors--so cool and minty.
