Defining Friend


Hello friends!  We made it to Friday, woohoo!  Today I'm playing along in the Muse Challenge, celebrating their 1st Anniversary.  I struggled a bit at first, as I was stuck on the hearts and colors, not my normal combo.  Then I focused on the idea of definitions and words, that's when the light bulb went off.  I substituted stars for hearts, added a few fun sequins and came up with a card that's perfect for just about anyone!  Here's the card that inspired me...


Have a great weekend everyone!
