Muse Challenge #196

Hello and welcome!!

Today I'm sharing a card I made to play at Muse Card Club Challenge #196.

This week's Muse is Tracey Mcneely. She has created a beautiful clean & simple card, featuring a pink watercolor butterfly and a large sentiment.
How was I inspired by Tracey's card?
  • The colors. I used watercolor paper and 3 shades of pink to create the gradient effect.
  • The insect (instead of a butterfly I used a ladybug).
  • Tracey embellished her butterfly with three Nuvo drops, so instead I used three sequins as embellishments.
  • The large beautiful sentiment
Here is my card...

I die cut extra wings from vellum and adhered them with small pieces of foam tape to give dimension to my ladybug.

This is Tracey's card:
