Muse Challenge #113/Diagonal Window Die

 My entry into the Muse Challenge #113.

I LOVE the voila! moment created by the Essential by Ellen's by Julie Ebersole Diagonal Window Die.  Even the simplest card, like this one, has a little pop.  Here I've used the adorable image from Waltzingmouse Stamps Nordic Spring, and left enough space to write in a short note, because I'm actually mailing this one!

I tend to freeze when presented with a challenge.  But I'm digging in and stretching myself.  Michelle Ferguson from I Card Everyone is the Muse on the Muse Challenge blog last week, and presented the following card, which I LOVE and which provided the inspiration for my card.  

Aren't those colors gorgeous?  I focused on the blue and white colors and then threw in a pop of bright pink and posted it just in time for the challenge to end.  (Yes, I tried about 3 versions of blue flowery cards but none of them came together...).

MOOD WHEN DONE = Accomplished

It's not the first time I've read that there were some struggles with this Muse card of mine - I know just what that is all about - those blue flowers!! Not often do we see blue in the botanical world. Well I love that you persevered, and reached outside the box, Joan. Love Ms. Julie's die AND your card! So happy to see you in the gallery this week...
