Muse #40


A quick post today for this week's Muse challenge...my sweet friend Darnell from djkardkreations is this week's guest designer and she made a lovely card for inspiration.  She choose to focus her card on October - Breast Cancer Awareness month and she made an amazing card.  I looked at for a while and tried to figure out what to make and piece by piece it came to me and I have to say that I am very happy with the way it turned out.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my card...have a fabulous week!

  8. Kim, this is so very pretty. What a beautiful way to send the gift of hope to someone. I love all your layered mats. I think my favorite thing about this card is the way you did the die cut letters for 'hope' and you have inspired me to try something similar. I can only hope that mine will be half as lovely.
