Muse.....a challenge

This week the inspiration card at MUSE is a card by Marion Vagg.

I love the design of this card....and it only took me a few minutes to decide what I wanted to do.  Here's my take on Marion's card:

I used Lenten Rose collection from Flourishes for my image.  The stamp I wanted to use needed just one more flower, so I used the single bloom in the set and stamped it first (The bloom on the left)...masked it...then stamped the main image over the top of it, which gave me a few leaves behind the flower I added to the image.  I colored the roses and leaves with several shades of red Copics.  To give the card a little more dimension, I stamped the flowers again on another piece of card stock, colored them and cut out the flowers I wanted to use.  I pop dotted the flowers over the ones I'd already colored.  I added some yellow stickles to the centers of the flowers...then rounded the corners of the white panel and popped it on a white card base.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...
