I am so in *love* with this color!  It sings of spring.  I was inspired by the color that is blooming all around. Isn't it lovely to see more than just grey and white?!  And this yellow is so cheerful. 


lido is part of the A Muse Studio Venetian color palette.  If you are looking for a pop of color, look no further. The Venetian pallette is sassy (burano), bold (lido), bright (bellini) and a little bit moody (rialto and titian).  They play well together and they work wonders with the classic A Muse Studio palettes.  

Not only are these colors some of the hottest, on trend colors of the spring (they are everywhere!!!)  but this little cutie of a card uses one of my favorite techniques and a huge trend right now bold, white embossing!  Embossing has stepped out of the 1990s and has a bold fresh look especially when combined with vivid colors!  

If you want to have some fun with embossing and all of the latest and greatest A Muse Studio bold images leave me a comment!  I do workshops throughout New England and in the NJ tristate area.

This is a fast & fabulous card that I was inspired to make for Easter. I had made some small crosses with palms from Palm Sunday. With a grunged sunray background behind it and a hand written sentiment it took no time at all to make this pretty card.

Card Recipe:  Stamp Set - grunged sunray; Ink - blush;  Cardstock- sugar; Accessories- glue dot, copic multi liner, palm leaf.  All products are by A Muse Studio.  Contact me for more info or visit my website at www.amusestudio.com/larakalapacs.
