Midnight Muse for FMS

This afternoon's card is inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

 I am still making my way through Christmas cards so it was just a decision of which image to use….and the beautiful dove from Calm Christmas is my favourite this year. I loved what Cindy made with this stamp too! Here is my version:

The card base is Midnight Muse and the White layer is embossed with the Pretty Print embossing folder. The lovely Silver Foil card stock is layered on top of another piece of Midnight Muse. The greeting s stamped in Versamark and clear embossed. The basic pearls used for agents are coloured with a Midnight Muse marker after being attached to the card.

Card stock: Midnight Muse, Whisper White, silver Foil
Ink: Midnight Muse, Hunter green (retired marker for branch), Versamark
Stamps: Calm Christmas
Accessories: Big Shot, Pretty Print EF, Basic Pearls

Whilst working in the garden today I came upon my favourite rose showing all of its colours. Its a Chameleon and when the buds first open they are a rich yellow and pink.
The next day the yellow fades a little as the pink flourishes.

And later the pink fades too to the edges and the centre fades to white

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Just beautiful! The dove is gorgeous and I love how you used the foil! Thanks for joining us at FMS!
