Muse #160 ~ Thanks!

Hello sweet blogging friends! I had a little time to craft last night and found myself drawn to this week's  Muse challenge. The fabulous Michele Ferguson has provided us with the inspiration card. Here's my take on it.


I've used PTI's Soft Stone as my gray. Michele's focal panel was covered in a striped bloom of sorts. I opted to use yellowy green stripes to mat my focal panel. What is it, you might ask? Embossed blooms! I KNOW Michele enjoys her embossing folders, so I had to sneak that in for her! My PTI butterfly is facing in the opposite direction. Why? It's pointing to Michigan!! I like to think her's is pointed to Ohio ~ hee!!! My gratitude sentiment comes in the form of thanks. And guess what...the company that makes the stamp is AMuse!


Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for visiting ~Lisa

Such a pretty, pretty take on Michele's card! Love the bright yellow background. And what a fun idea to let the direction of the butterfly be inspired by geography. ;o)
