Muse Guest Designer: XOXO

This is my second post for today...please scroll down 
to see my Precious Remembrance Design It Monday post! 

The photo of my card has been removed because the card is out for publication. Thanks so much for looking!

What a happy post this is - I am over-the-moon excited to tell you that I am this week's Guest Designer at the Muse Card Club!

I received such a sweet email from Jackie Rockwell inviting me to help her with this new, unique and super fun blog...here's how it works:
  • Use ANYTHING you want from your stash to create a project inspired by this week's Muse. 
  • In your post, explain how you were inspired and link back to the Muse blog.
  • Provide supportive comments on at least 3 other member's submissions.
  • Vote for three of your fellow member's submissions.
All of the details can also be found here on the Muse blog. Now that we've got that squared away, here is the card I made for you all this week:

I didn't get a chance to play along with the first Muse challenge, but was totally inspired by Amy Kolling's use of flowers in her Muse card last week. Since Raspberry Fizz is my all-time favorite color to craft with, I started with a piece of cardstock and went through my patterned papers until I came across the matching American Crafts XOXO stash. As it turns out, I did not use any stamps or bling or ribbon on this card!

The top edge of the card was cut using an oval Nestabilities die. It was pretty easy to do, but in case you're still not sure, I made a quick video for you:

I hope my card inspires you, and that you'll interpret my project in your own special way and join in on the fun this week! Will you choose the layout? The colors? The hearts or flowers or arrows? The patterns? I can't wait to see what you make!

Many thanks to Jackie and the Muse Card Club for having me this week! I feel so blessed to be a part of this new journey and a member of this fantastic card club!

Hey Suzanne!!! Here is that beauty!!! Love that you didn't use any stamping, bling, etc. I'm very inspired by that part of your card however I'd have to go buy some product to make a card! (Kinda defeats the purpose of the challenge). Congrats on being the Muse this week!!!! :)
