Muse Challenge #3

First, we'd like to thank Amy Kolling and Suzanne Dahlberg for helping us launch Muse with their beautiful cards. Now we're ready to start sharing some cards from our Design Team. We'll be featuring a mix of new cards and favorite cards from the past. First up is Laurie Willison, she's been a very busy designer lately! So I was thrilled when she agreed to provide us with a card each month for our inspiration. This beauty is just exploding with spring color and happiness!

You're free to draw your inspiration from any of the elements of Laurie's card. For example, design/layout, color combination, pattern, texture, image, style, embellishment and technique. Be creative and make a card that reflects your own personal style and flair.

Now here's your Monday Muse, Laurie Willison!
We can't wait to see your unique take on this week's card!

Here are the 3 simple rules:
  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring.

IMPORTANT: Before you create and submit your card please read the Member Rules page.

The InLinkz will close and voting will begin at 12 noon EST on Saturday, February 9. Please don't forget to come back and vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions. Voting ends on Sunday at 12 noon EST. The results of voting will be announced at 8:59 a.m. EST and our new challenge will begin at 9:00 a.m. EST on Monday, February 11.
