Christmas Is Coming!

Well not really but a new Christmas Card Challenge has 
popped up in blogland this week 

Muse Christmas Visions
(sister challenge to the super popular Muse Card Club)

I love Muse so simply had to join the fun, especially
when I saw the fabulously dramatic DT card from Kimberley Weiner

As luck would have it the theme at another of my favourite
Chrismas Challenge blogs, Merry Monday fits perfectly with the same card!
They are looking for a Christmas card with wet or dry embossing! Sorted.

So here's my card followed by Kimberley's inspiration Muse 

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Pretty Poinsettia set & sentiment from the same
Heat embossed with WoW copper sparkle EP
Stabilo pens (thanks to the amazingly talented Julia of Just One More Card
for introducing these pens to us - I love them)
Gems and nailheads to accent from my stash.


Thanks as always for stopping by and hope you've not lost
my previous posts from today as I don't normally post so many
in one day! Had to catch these Christmas ones though before the gates close!

  15. So pretty, Sarah! I love the 'webs' of gold through the blue petals (I know it's different with poinsettias, but I can't remember what they're really called - leaves?) So glad you joined us for our first MCV challenge!

  16. Stunning! I love the bright colours and all the touches of gold. Gorgeous Christmas card. Thanks for playing at Merry Monday.

  17. the thing that struck me at first glance is the movement of the flowers, if that makes sense! Sometimes I feel my flowers are just sitting there on the card...but yours are placed perfectly and I do so love the colors with this muse! Stunning card!
