MUSE challenge #132

I am sharing a last minute entry to the MUSE challenge this week.  I saw Joan's lovely card earlier this week and knew right away what I wanted to do to copy her card.  It just took me this long to finally have some time to make it!
Here is Joan's card:

Her stamp by Taylored Expressions has lots of different sayings in a variety of fonts, and  I immediately thought of this Hero Arts Blackboard thank you stamp that I have.  

Here is my take on her card:

I inked up my stamp with the new ombre ink pad in tide pool to navy colors.   The picture doesn't do it justice - it is so pretty in real life.  (I think I waited to late in the day to take the picture, and the sun was too low!)  I mounted it on a quick card panel from Reverse Confetti with those fun big polka dots.

Thanks Joan for being a wonderful MUSE!  I had fun copying your card!!

And since this is the first time I have used my new ombre ink, I am also linking up to Darnell's NBUS challenge!  

Hope you all had a great weekend!
