Now on to this week's spark!  As you read in my last post, A Muse is celebrating it's 7th anniversary this week!  And in honor of this celebratory occassion, I've got what I think is a really fun challenge to spark your creativity this week!

Make a card using at least 7 things!

Now, I know what you're thinking - 7 things?!  That's crazy!  Trust me, it's not that tough when you start thinking about it!  Look at my example below and you'll see what I mean!

2008.05.22.022
Let's count ... 4 stamps and 3 card layers to start!  See!? I used 7 items before using any embellishments at all!  Easy peasy!  (I could also count Stickles and Copics as well for a total of 9 items used!)

2008.05.22.023
I created this graduation card for last week's A Muse newsletter. (See the link under the A Muse essentials list up there on the left if you're not already signed up.)  I was pretty happy with it.  *laugh*  The party banner has always been one of my favorite stamps, and one of my favorite things to do with it is add a bit of color and go over it with coordinating Stickles!   (You could easily tailor it to a graduate's school colors too!)  I really love the look of the colored banners with the Stickles! 

So now it's your turn!  Take this spark and run with it!  There are SO many possibilities and I'm really looking forward to seeing what you create this week!  And don't forget to share your spark by leaving a comment on this post with a link to your creations!

Great challenge to get my creative side going!

This card is adorable!!! I never would have thought there were 7 items used!

Finally got one of your "sparks" done. Always wanted to try one. Don't have a blog though so hope this gallery post is OK.
