Muse Challenge #5

Woohoo! TGIF!

Have you joined in the fun over at the Muse Card Club Challenge yet? You are missing out on a good time if you haven't!

Marion Vagg was this week's Muse. You can see her inspiring card here.

I was drawn to the geometric pattern of the background, the fresh color combination, and the way the sentiment had its own line in the design. This is what I created, using stamps from Mama Elephant:

Giving my version of clean, simple geometric a try. I started by masking off a portion of my oatmeal cardstock, then stamping the triangle border from Trifecta. Then I went in with a color combo inspired by Marion's and stamped a selection of triangles. When I was happy with the way that looked, I stamped my sentiment in the open space.

I'd love to hear your thoughts - not quite sure if I have the feel of this yet. What do you think? Love playing along with these Muse challenges, though!

Before I head out, I have been meaning to post the recipe for this White Chili I made the other night (for you, Kim!).

You can find the recipe here from Taste of Home. It is set up for a slow cooker, but I popped it all in a pot and let it cook for about half an hour - was perfect! This is a big favorite around here.. it was SO good, and it made lots of leftovers (which were also delicious!).  Enjoy!

Nice to see you here today!
