What a Muse!

Can you believe I am playing again at Muse this week?
I couldn't resist this beautiful card by
Marion Vagg:

Isn't it gorgeous?????

I bet you can see what inspired me on this one,
I had this great cut file from Silhouette called Always and Forever Frame . I actually turned the tab and mounted it a bit differently from the original so that it would work with my lovely image from Magic Moonlight , be sure to sign up for the newsletter so that you won't miss any of her beautiful free images.

I changed the cut file into a print and cut using the color eye dropper to perfectly
match the colors to the flowers and blues in his outfit.

I used a chevron border also from Silhouette to do a direct print and cut on my 
background layer, then started layering all of my 
pieces using foam dots to give it dimension.
I sponged Worn Lipstick around my heart and cut this out twice, you
can never have too many hearts, right?

I did a slight offset around the sentiment and the flourish, which is also from 
the Silhouette store. Here is a side view so you can see the layers.

I trimmed the flourish to make it fit on my frame and was able
to use the leftover piece to accent the inside of my card.

So looking forward to giving this to my hubby on Valentine's Day!

As I said this is for Challenge #52 at Muse
Also for Sentimental Sunday Theme "Lovey Dovey" with a sentiment 

Hope you can check out these sites and maybe play along.

Have a wonderful weekend, it is suppose to be in the mid 50's 
for us, can you say heat wave???????????
