Muse Challenge # 6

                                                              
                                           You're free to draw your inspiration from any of the elements of Deanna's card, shown above. 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.   You can read more about the challenge HERE on the MUSE blog.

Well, I am not so clever with free hand drawing lines, so I guess my style is more uniform and using a ruler!  So this is what I came up with.   I liked the cluster of flowers, so I knew I wanted to do that and I liked her colors although mine are a bit more subdued.
    Stamps:  PTI simple sunflower, CAS-ual Friday casual elegance
    ink:  raspberry fizz, berry sorbet, hibiscus burst, limeade
    paper:  PTI rustic cream
