Muse#169




Hi everyone!!!


Just look at the sweet card Michele Ferguson has up at the Muse Challenge Blog!!!!  How could I not want to play along!!!!!



Michele's pocket full of hearts brought a song to my mind!!!  This is what I was inspired to make:





...catch a falling star and put it in your pocket....
...never let it fade away...
...catch a falling star and put it in your pocket....
.....save it for a rainy day....

This song comes from some time before I was around, but I know it as it is a favorite of my mom!!!


Done some sponging with DIs.
Stars cut with PTI and MFT dies.
So happy that I could work out a way to add stitching lines to my panels, using my MFT Notebook Edge Die!!!   
The die cut word was a gift from a friend!!!



Thanks so much for popping in - your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

Gorgeous card, Petra! Your background is fabulous and I love how you were inspired by Michele's Muse card. Now I've got that song in my head (which is a bit before my time as well) :)

Great, now that song is in my brain, and I'll be singing it all night! Oh well, I always loved to hear Perry Como sing it :-}. You've represented it perfectly with this lovely card. Love the background, the falling stars, and especially the tiny vellum pocket. Very clever interpretation with the heart inspiration, and you did a fab look. As always! TFS & have a great week
