MUSE181 and NBUS7 - Happy Day

Hello!

I've created a card for Muse Challenge 181 and for Darnell's NBUS Challenge 7. After a very, very  long time of waiting and several frustrated attempts to buy this stamp set (sold out EVERY time I went to buy it), I recently finally got my hands on Altenew's Beautiful Day stamps. By now I think every idea may have been exhausted by our very talented crafting community but that won't stop me exploring them all again myself! :-)
I took the basic layout of Sarah's Muse card and turned it on its side. I masked and stamped the side strip, masked and stamped the leaves, and then stamped and fussy cut the flowers before arranging them. Once I finished, I decided my sentiment needed to be small to balance the rest of the design (sometimes I get carried away). The sentiment is from Altenew Hennah Elements. Inks are Altenew.

This is Sarah's beautiful Muse inspiration card.
Thanks for visiting!

This is an utter delight! Love your gentle and fresh take on my Muse card. Can't resist Altenew and this set in particular ... it's so sophisticated and elegant - on my wish list! A superb showcase of the set and a brilliant entry in the Muse gallery! Thank so much Michelle. Sarah x

Way to be, Michelle! I sometimes get a popular set of stamps and then don't use them because it's all been "done," you know (krazy birds anyone), but you're right, that's dumb and I should just use those stamps anyway! Thank you for that and for playing in my challenge for the third time! I love how you turned the Muse card on it's side and I think you did an outstanding and UNIQUE card with your long-desired stamps!! Hugs, Darnell
