I CASEd this card from Linda, the CEO of A Muse Studio…when I spotted it on her blog, I knew I had to make one too!  This is one of the cards we made at my Hostess Club this week and I have to say everyone left happy!  It’s easy to feel like an artist with good stamps and some Splash for watercoloring.  I also found out the MOPS theme this year is Be Brave – which I’m excited about because I will be joining a local MOPS group in April to make a craft with them.  It’s been years since I was part of MOPS and I look forward to my day together with the ladies in worship and crafting.

This is the Fiesta color palette from A Muse Studio’s base catalog that they introduced this year – with some Lime thrown in!  It’s a color palette that makes me happy – especially when paired with these flowers.  I used the new stamp set, Love and Thanks from A Muse Studio’s March Collection and paired with with Mini Blooms and Handscripted.  See how beautifully the cardstock and buttons match?  It’s no accident, they are from the Fiesta palatte too!  :)

Amusing Challenge winners

I spotted a blog challenge on facebook called Muse Challenges that I had seen once and forgotten about…but the colors of the card stopped me dead in my tracks and I knew I had to play along!  So, I am getting this in just under the wire too late but it’s one of my favorite color combos – yellow, grey and black.

I used two new sets from A Muse Studio’s March Collection – I am in love with this entire collection!  Don’t miss out on it because after the 31st you may not be able to get any of the stamps any longer – they have been very popular.
