Muse Challenge #14

I was tickled to see that the Monday Muse at Muse is my friend Virginia!  I got some new stamps this afternoon, so I was armed with both inspiration and motivation to enter this challenge in honor of Virginia!  Here's my card, inspired by the flowers, the masking, and the colors that Virginia used:


supplies: Technique Tuesday Two Steppin' and Simply You by Ali Edwards, pickled raspberry, peacock feathers, and mustard seed distress inks

Here's Virginia's happy card:


Virginia's cards are invariably colorful and happy, with a style all her own.  Congratulations, my friend, on this well-deserved honor!
