VMAA "Let it Be" Challenge


OK, here we go! The first challenge in the 2nd Virtual Meeting of A Muse Addicts (VMAA), is to "let it be" by not using embellishments. I decided to make a Mother's Day card for my mom and this just so happens to include a *sneak peek* too!
.................................
Images and notecards by A Muse. Adirondack Latte and Espresso ink, Brilliance graphite black (heat-set), Copic markers (raw silk, sand, and migonette), Marvy Giga scallop oval punch, dimensionals.

Oh, this is so cute! I love the Mamma bird with the eggs. It really doesn't need embellishment.

Thanks! Kim - the branch has been around for a little while (maybe since last summer?) Try the A Muse website - under the Nature section - around page 6.
