Muse #68

Evening all. 
Not a very good day weather wise, a bit damp and drab. So grey that we resorted to firing up the range cooker this afternoon. Tomorrow looks worse so we may light it again. So much for Spring Bank Holiday!
This week the muse at Muse is Marion Vagg with this delightful card.


I love the clean and simple layout of her card and had lots of ideas on how to go with my take and in the end I went with my Poinsettia die from Le Crea. That meant it was a Christmas card but hey you've got to start sometime.


I added some gold/yellow crystals to the center of the flower and some extra foliage with my Sizzix die from Stampin Up. The chevrons were cut from some matt silver textured card and pieced where the same white ones were cut from the main 5 x 7 card. The greeting is from a Woodware collection, not sure of the name.Must look out for some larger greetings in time for this Christmas.
Well that's it for today, come back tomorrow for some more DT and GD inspiration.

I would also like to join in at :-
