Vellum Blog Hop & Lost Muse

I don't know where my muse has gone. I have an order for 6 cards, and for 4 days I have tried to make cards to fill that order. Nada, nada, nada. I have done what I usually do when I lose my muse...shopped. I've ordered from Papertrey and Flourishes. I've been to 3 different stamp stores 6 times. I've spent hours at the galleries of SCS and Papertrey. What do I have to show for it?
I've decided to try and CASE myself, lol, which brings me to cleaning out the hard drive~ here's a card from the July PTI Blog Hop. We were to use vellum. The top vellum is a thin version, not from PTI. I embossed with the older Cuttlebug flowers folder, then used SU chalk along the stems, and a pink Stickles on the flowers. It is anchored with Glue Dots for vellum, which I think work very well, even with very see through vellum! The lace border is Fiskars Threading Water punch used on PTI's vellum. Papers are PTI's Sweet Blush and Chocolate, the ribbon is Sweet Blush Swiss Dots.
Oh muse, where are you?

Hmmm..Sweet Blush swiss dots and embossed vellum. Very, very pretty. Soft,Fresh,Feminine. Definitely gets my own muse stirring, there, Beth. I think we all need to review some of our past works to get the old inspiration motivated.
