MCV13 - Merry


This is my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge, where Guest Muse Pam Allen has provided us with this starry inspiration:



I focused on Pam's
-theme (stars)
-one-word sentiment
-dark background
-colour scheme (green, red and yellow)

My PTI outline stars were cut from an old panel I had created using distress mists in Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed, with gold spritzed over top (they shimmer in real life). I inlaid an old PTI sentiment into my navy blue background.

I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this week - the deadline is Wednesday morning at 8 am EDT. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Thursday morning. Voting results will be posted on Thursday at noon.

Ooh, fabulous! The big 'merry' packs a punch against the navy, and the stars add lovely pops of colour.
