MCV14, CTS135 - Merry


This week at Muse: ChristmasVisions, Kimberly has provided this really fun, colourful (and multi-themed) inspiration:



There are many ways to go with this, and I wasn't sure at first what I would do, but that situation happens to me all the time. And trust me, it's nothing that a few (hundred?) sheets of white cardstock can't fix! lol! I tried a whole lot of different ideas, but settled with this Simon snowflake frame (one of the ideas was to use 4 of them, one with each colour). In the end, I like the sponged look of the little inlaid background - almost like the glow of Christmas lights! I used a Simon merry die to finish off.

I used the current CAS(E) This Sketch layout:



There are still a few days to play along with us! The deadline is Wednesday at 8 am EDT. At that time you can vote until Thursday morning at 8. Voting results will be posted at noon on Thursday. Hope to see you there!

  15. I love the look of the "background lights" behind that lovely snowflake cut, Ardyth. You always manage to simplify an inspiration card and make it magnificent.
