MUSE - I'm here for you!

Darnell is the lovely guest designer at MUSE this week - and besides being hilarious, she's clever, kind, and incredibly well-spoken about the subject of breast cancer this week. Read her post here - she discusses the symbolism behind the card she created, and you will come away feeling loved. I promise.

My card is very literally inspired by Darnell's - the layout, the torn vellum and patterned paper, the pearls, and even the same stamp set (I think - I have the same sentiment as her card, but chose another from the set that I hadn't inked yet. NBUS bonus!)


Supplies: stamps from Flourishes; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Spectrum Noir markers; HOTP patterned vellum; MME patterned paper; pearls from Dollarama

Here's Darnell's card:



I've tagged this card with 'get well' also - this sentiment is one that would be perfect for those incredibly difficult situations where a loved one is awaiting test results, and a traditional get well card would be inappropriate in that case.

xoxo,
Jessi

Thank you, Jessi, for the wonderful post and your magnificent CASE of my MUSE card! Actually I don't have that sediment and, boy, do I ever love it. I can think (sadly) of several cards I've sent where that would have been perfect. Those three pink pearls are so beautiful as a finishing touch. Love it!! Hugs, Darnell
