Muse Card Challenge #159 & Make It Monday #244


Today, I have a card to share for the Muse Card Challenge #159,
where we were encouraged to be inspired by this card by Jenni Murray:


I was inspired by the red flowers, with the black, to make my card:


I stamped my flowers from Brushed Blooms onto its coordinating diecut, in Altenew inks 
(Crimson, Velvet, Frayed Leaves, Forrest Glades).
I added a black panel along the side and scored two lines on my background,


I stamped the sentiment from Spring Woods in versa fine onyx black.

Thanks for looking!

Love this one, Leigh. I agree that the understated scoring could not be more perfect. I love your use of prominently white and red, with some black, for a sympathy card. I will be CASEing this to add to my sympathy card stash, if you don't mind. It's just the perfect balance, which is always difficult to achieve.

Leigh, what a striking sympathy card! Love the black along the right, and your score lines behind your Brushed Blooms add just the right texture. Brilliant design!

This is outstanding, Leigh! The way you have the flower hanging off the white panel onto the black, and the score lines, adds so much interest to this design. Simple yet so fabulous because of your attention to detail!
