Playing at Muse!

Big things are happening at Muse this week, it’s their 100th challenge and Michele has her Designer debut card and it’s brilliant!  I am so happy that I found a minute to make a card and join in the fun.  I was inspired by her idea to ‘Accentuate the Negative’ but lucked out on the song lyrics…..    I suppose I could have tried Happy Birthday to you, but I thought that was a little lame lol.

I would also like to share this card with Darnell’s NBUS challenge as this is the first time I’ve used these fab balloon dies from Penny Black.  Thanks for another great challenge Darnell!

  1. I’m trying to resist buying a set of balloon dies Therese – you’re not helping me with this awesome card!! Looks fab!

  2. Love your card. Those bright colors are great! Now I have to convince myself that I don’t need anymore balloon dies … but the heart one is so sweet. Sigh.

  3. I cannot tell you how geeked I am to see this gorgeous card! Love the colors, the die cut… and happy birthday is the perfect song!! [Seeing MY name on your blog is the candle on the cake, Therese – I am your biggest fan, you know =] Michele

  4. oh my golly Therese. I love love love this. Wow. Love how you used color here. You should upload this to Virginia’s View Challenge #11 Clean Slate.

  5. Wonderful, Therese … so bright and fun and celebratory! I’m hunting for some balloon stamps and dies (can you believe I don’t have any?!) … hmmm … more possibilities to add to the list! Anita 🙂

  6. OMG, I made a card very like this for my niece this week (to be blogged after her birthday) – let me just say, love the colours and the big round window! Great minds for sure! So glad you could join in the fun this week, Therese!

    1. Haha, I know that your niece will love it! Would you believe that when I sat back and looked at my card I thought to myself that I must have been channeling my inner Ardyth lol.

  7. Such a fun take on Michele’s Muse card, Therese! I love the stripes on the numbers and your color combo is fabulous! Awesome card, as always!

  8. Love the colours you have chosen to create with and the striped numbers are a perfect accent. Great arrangement too!

  9. Oh, Therese, you hit all the buzzers of my Love It Machine!! A big circle with the bright colored balloons peeking through would be sensational enough, but to make your circle into a balloon itself is pure genius!! Someone embarking on this milestone birthday is gonna be over-the-moon with this baby!! And it’s perfect for MUSE! Thank you so much for linking it also with my NBUS Challenge #3!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Love your card! It’s so cheerful and happy looking!
    You are way smarter than me for the lyrics – I would never have remembered that Happy Birthday is a song!

  11. Fabulous Therese – it is lovely to have you celebrate Muse #100 with us! Great colour combo…and I’m loving those balloon dies 🙂

  12. Popping in from the Muse challenge, your card is fabulous! I love your take on Michele’s card. The smaller balloons in the larger balloon are fabulous! Love the age put on the balloon too. Hugs, Brenda
