Muse - Yay, You! Happy Birthday


Playing cards at Muse Challenge #206 where Anita has provided a stunning card for our inspirations.  For my rendition I chose to use Cone Flowers and colors. I love the hybrid Cone Flowers in the coral shades, so I made the background panel coral using a combination of Distress Inks. The flowers were masked/stamped. Some pink highlights were added to the flower petals and the top of the cone. Black dots were added to the flowers' cones.The black coloring beneath the flowers was done to cover black smudges made during the stamping process. A couple coats of clear WOS were applied to the black area. The card panel was adhered to pink polka dot DP.

Hope your day is wonderful.
