MCV21, LIM243, PSS - Christmas Greetings


This is my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where we have a Guest Muse: Ingrid Blackburn. Ingrid gave us this wonderful, holly-ful inspiration:




I focused on Ingrid's:
-theme (holly - my leaf is from Paper Smooches Christmas Words 2 dies and the berries are from the Poinsettia set).
-gold sentiment (Christmas is also from the Christmas Words 2 set, greetings is from Metropolis).
-layout (I kept the white panel slightly longer so that the black cardbase only shows at the sides).
-bling (Ingrid used Gold ep and sequins, and I used inlaid foil cardstock).

It was fun to use foil cardstock to get some real shine and colour, but man, it's hard to photograph!

I'm also linking up to the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge as well as Less Is More, where the recipe is 'Something Shiny'.

ETA - Oct 9 - this card was Showcased at LIM!

Anyway, I hope you'll join us - we are now less than 3 months away from the big day, people! The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday morning at 8 am EDT. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Thursday at 8 am. Voting results will be posted on Thursday at noon.
