MUSE Card Club Guest Designer -SU Backyard Basics

I am so excited to be  the MUSE Card Club  #37 Guest Designer this week. I just love playing along with the participants each week- so many talented cardmakers out there. I send out thanks to all of you who have inspired me week after week! I have been wanting to ink up my SU Backyard Basics set and use the coordinating framelits  so I decided to use it for a card my neighbor needed this week. I can’t wait to see how you are inspired by it- will it be the colors, the design, the flower, or the kind of card?

  5. Congratulations on your GD spot this week, Cindy … you’ve certainly created an elegant and beautiful card … I particularly love that you took the outside in! Anita 🙂

    1. Thank you, Anita.I finished the card and was not satisfied with any way to get my sentiment on the outside so I put it on the inside… I usually always forget to decorate the inside of the card!
