Christmas Visions

Evening folks.
Just a quick post to share a card I made for a couple of challenges.


Don't know if you know but MUSE has diversified into Christmas with their Christmas Visions Challenge. This is the first time I've had the chance to play along. This week the Muse is Tracey McNeely and here is her card.


I took my cues from the snowy background, triangular trees and the snowdrifts. As the latest challenge at Merry Monday is to use newsprint, I thought I would use that for my DP. Instead of embossing the snow onto the card I found a scrap of DP with falling snow from the bits box, LOTV I think. I put the sentiment in the bottom right of the snowdrifts as I didn't think it would show up against the background DP. The snowdrifts were cut using a MFT die and the trees are an old die from Cuttlebug.
Well I said it was quick so that's about it. Al has gone off to play with his toys so its just me and the dog! Catch up TV I think.

I'm joining in the fun at -

          


Thanks for stopping by. :)
