Muse Challenge #110

Look at me playing along with a challenge just for the craftiness of it.  Don't get me wrong I love being on the teams as a DT member, heck in most case it is the only excuse to get my butt into the craft room these days. Sometime though it is all about playing along.

I am playing along with Muse today, I love Tenia's card it was fantastic inspiration for me... I have been missing that as of late.


I went with a masculine style card, using a hexagon stamp. I used similar patterned paper along the side. I used MS Word for the sentiment and a typewriter font, I used chunky cuts on the layers and staples hold them on. I finished with some twine.

Supplies: White and black card stock, Designer Papers – MME, Fiskars- Hexagon Sentiments, twine.

Thank you for playing along.
