Random Amusing Challenge #23

I'm back from my travels..... I was in Iceland and Norway (Analyn - congrats on guessing right!). Had a great time but am happy to be home. Will post some photos soon.

On to the challenge.... you are to be inspired by the following image from Cirque du Soleil (one of my favourite things to go and see - I'm a Cirque addict). These aren't really my colours so it was definitely a challenge for me. I love the flowers and the swirls so couldn't resist using it. As usual, try to use a little A Muse on your card. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers, please use the keyword GRAC23. Thanks to the following talented ladies for playing along with the green and pink challenge from two weeks ago.... Cheiron, Lindsay (first time playing - welcome!), Laura, Karen (I believe it's Karen's first time too - welcome!), Donna, Susie (three first timers - wow! Welcome!), Dawn and Kerry.

Here's my card...think it turned out ok.... what do you think?
Hope all of you mother's had a great day. I also have to wish my fabulous Mom a belated 65th birthday - her birthday was on May 8th. Have fun playing along and have a great week. Remember to check out the A Muse News for more 8th Anniversary fun!

Take care and be good to yourself.... Glenda

  1. Welcome home, Glenda! I think you did a great job on your card. I especially like how you have the ribbon coming through the top piece of paper. The bling on the flowers and the piercing are perfect touches. Thanks for the challenge and the inspiration!

  2. Welcome back Glenda! Looks like you had fun on your trip! Love how you used the ribbon and the vine border (I had to use it too!)...
    Here's my card:

  3. Cute card! Sounds like you had awesome travels! How fun! Very cute card - I'll try working on my challenge for this week before we begin another. Trying to get through GRAD week and have DD's D-1 College Soccer coaches in town for a bit so entertaining big time....

  4. Glad to hear that you're back! I got my card(s) posted: http://allthingsanalyn.blogspot.com/2009/05/random-amusing-challenge-23.html
