Thank You cards - MUSE #147

Well, I'm going for the gusto! My first challenge EVER, and I must say I was prodded on by the wonderful Michele of I Card Everyone.  She was my first follower, and the second to contact me and welcome me to the card making world of blogging.  PLUS, she's actually the MUSE -- how could I not?  Here's Michele's card:

So here it is, my entry for MUSE #147:

I used Michele's basic color scheme, die cuts and layout.  I changed up the white on black to black on white paper, light to dark oval, no stamping, theme.

Here is the runner up I am not linking to the challenge:

Sorry for the quality of the pics, overcast weather is not helping!

Thank you so much for coming by!
