MCV17 - Merry Little Christmas


This is my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge, where Guest Muse Kristie has given us this clean, crisp inspiration:


I focused on Kristie's
-colour combination
-use of black frame (although I changed the proportion)
-addition of small amounts of sparkle
-vertical/mixed-font sentiment

I used a sentiment from Papertrey's Jolly Holiday and the lights from Simon's Build A Snowman. I coloured the lights with copics and then added Stickles for some shine.

I hope you'll get a chance to join us - the deadline for this week's challenge is Wednesday morning at 8 am. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites (even if you didn't link up a card) until Thursday morning at 8. Voting Results will be posted on Thursday at noon.

Bev has a keen eye....I never would have noticed the one red, one green and one mixed string of lights! The Stickles sure do add nice luster to the bulbs!

I really NEED that sentiment in my Christmas collection!
