Muse - You Were Meant to Shine

Greetings Everyone!

Muse Challenge #218 ... How fun ... a birthday celebration for Ardyth  ... 50 birthday wishes in this post!!!

This celebration includes using one of her cards as our muse ... and we have chances for presents!! I scanned many, many of her cards (getting inspiration galore) and found one created in 2012 that I chose to use.  My rendition includes layout, sun, red embellishment.

For the sun, I used the negative of a die-cut for a stencil and blended three yellow colors of Distress Inks. The center of the sun is a daisy die-cut colored with the same yellow Distress inks ... only inked deeper in color. Then, the die-cut was painted with a few coats of clear WOS to give it shine/shimmer. A ladybug embellishment was added for interest.

Wish everyone a fun day.
