Muse Farewell to Jenni.....

Hello everyone : Jenni Murray from the MUSE CHALLENGE is having a goodbye post as she is leaving the DT.  Her card is simple and, at the same time, a bit tricky to make, I wanted to give it a try and, after a couple of fail attempts and thanks to my MISTI, I was able to create this card, that looks a lot like hers. Here is my card and Jenni's.

I went to look for sets that had "Thank You" sentiments in them,  I tried to find the ones that would fit the 3"x3" center panel and, after a short while, I found two, both sets are old and retired from Flourishes, I used one called "Picking Wild Flowers" for the center sentiment and another one called "With Gratitude" for all the sentiments around it. This stamp is a long one with the word "Thank You" in English, Spanish, French and German, with really beautiful fonts.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and Humming Bird are from an retired Flourishes set called "Humming Along", the little flower is from a retired Stampin' Up! set called "Happiness Shared".

I'm linking this card to the following challenges:

ModSquad Challenge "Colorful Creations" Use many colors on your card.
Sisterhood of Crafters"Anything Goes" but try to think outside the box.
I've never made a card like this so, I hope it's ok. for this challenge.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

I love my MISTI too, sometimes it's just the only way lol, though I still like to 'old school' stamp, that is hold my breath and hope for the best.... Love how the sentiments are so perfectly balanced and the bright cheery colour combo would make anyone's day!

Lovely interpretation of Jenni's Muse card. Love the "international" flavour. :)

As always a beautiful design Maria and I love that you did the different colours like Jenni. It will be such a shame to see Jenni go. PS Also love your always inspiring insides of your cards that I sadly never get around to going. Hugs xx Aileen
