MCV21 and cas on Sunday

After the almighty struggle with the Muse card  last week, this one for Muse Christmas Visions sort of made itself and I think I have incorporated most of the same elements that our very, very talented Guest Designer Ingrid Blackburn has used !!

I started by using a SU roller to make the holly,then over - stamped that with some script using 'old paper' distress ink.I then mounted it on black card, made a banner and heat embossed my sentiment in gold and snipped the ends to make it flag tailed. Next I cut out a sprig of holly and adding some red sequins for berries
.Now I really like a simple panel in the middle -as you know! :) - but this time it seemed to lack something .So found a scrap of dotty embossed card (thanks Michele for reminding me about using my embossing folders! ) and mounted it on that.... And totally different from my usual style but think I actually like it !
Think this would also qualify for the CAS on Sunday challenge as they are asking  for polka dots as their theme.

Thanks for taking the time to look


  1. I remember that wheel - Used to have it myself! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the use of the sequins as the berries - will have to remember that one. :) What great simplicity and pop in your card. Thanks so much for playing along with MCV this week! :)

  2. Oh, Jenni ... I believe this is a winner ... such a perfect take on the muse.

  3. Lovely! I forgot about wheels - you've put this one to good use! So glad you joined us at MCV this week!
