Muse Challenge # 72

Over at Muse  this week they have a card which is stunning and in one of my favourite colours.
This is gorgeous and I'm a big fan of Marion's work. I wanted to create something along the same lines but would be a slightly different shade of turquoise.
I loved the idea of having a stamped pattern coming from the side of the cardstock, so tried this with my one and only flower stamp set. I added some Wink of Stella to the middle of each flower and then popped it up on some foam squares. I even managed to restrain myself from using any enamel dots as I wanted it to be very simple.

The sentiment is from Altenew 'Sohcahtoa', the flowers from Altenew 'Painted Flowers' and the paper is from American Crafts 'My Girl'.

Off to hang out washing and then do some gardening for my Mum. Her hands are gradually getting better (after surgery) but don't want her out there trying to use the secateurs on her hydrangeas. Hopefully I won't freeze to death doing it!!!!

Take care
