Muse-CASology-NBUS-AAA - I Think You're Awesome

Greetings Everyone!

Today, I started with a card for Muse ... then, it happened to work for CASology, AAA Cards and NBUS.  

Muse Card Challenge 181 - Sarah Platt provided us a fantastic card for our inspirations. My inspirations translated to an almost-CASE - colors, heart, layout, yellow strip at bottom, black strip. I loved her die-cut heart so I made my own rendition by doing water color smooshing/swooshing with yellow, green, blue Distress inks. Then, I used a cutting plate and a black ball-point pen to make the pattern. Then, I thought the heart could use some sparkle,so a couple coats of clear WOS were applied.

CASology 213 - Stitch. The heart and bottom strip are stitched.

AAA Cards Challenge #72 - New Technique.  My new technique is the pattern I made on the heart using a cutting plate and black ball-point pen.

NBUS #7 Challenge - part of the sentiment and the black glitter paper (the package that included this paper had never been open ... of course, I had to have it when I bought it a couple years ago!!) are my NBUS.  This is a fun challenge hosted by Darnell.

Hope your day is enjoyable.

Thank you for visiting ... always appreciate your feedback.
