I have not played along for a few weeks now with the Muse Card Club– a fun challenge site where YOU get to pick the cards that tickle your fancy. Life has been crazy busy but I was determined to submit this week! I have enjoyed The Muse Club because it has opened up a new avenue of inspiration for me. This week, Marion Vagg has a cute birdcage with a chalkboard effect on her card for the MUSE #44.
My friend Wendy and I were at a summer craft show a few years ago, and I just had to have this birdcage die so Wendy got it for me for Christmas! And…I made her save it until Christmas,too! I guess that showed a little crafting constraint. Fast Forward to now and I finally used it…thanks, girlfriend;)
I think you can see how Marion’s card inspired mine…I used my SU Boho Blossoms punch and the Bird Builder punch leaves to make my little bouquet. I popped the birdcage up off the card and it looks really sweet in person.The hubster said I should have put a bird in the cage, too but I had already finished the card. Head over to the Muse site and vote for your favorite submissions this week.
(P.S. I was asked to make 5 sympathy cards so I thought this fit that need.)
