Something Shiny

We all love shiny things I think, so this week's challenge at Less is More is a JOY!  Here is my card, which will add to my Christmas stash.


Hard to see the shine, but the next view might be better.


I die cut the Joy to the World Wreath by Cheery Lyn, and inlaid it back into the white card front.  It seems to suit the CAS style better this way.  The shiny sentiment is cut from silver mirror card, mounted to self adhesive foam - as you can see in the shiny photo - no messy glue to spoil the effect!


While visiting the LIM blog, I realised that my card would also qualify for the current Muse challenge.  

This is the first time I have entered, so here are their rules:

  • Use the inspiration card as a starting point - strictly speaking, I found my card fits the criteria after I had made it, but the links are - metallic sentiment, scattered berries, and a stitched border to frame the panel.
  • Make a Christmas or winter-themed card, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse: ChristmasVisions. My card is definitely a Christmas card
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow members' submissions that you find inspiring.
This is Ingrid's Christmas card Muse



 



I am also a late entry into the challenge at Live Love Cards, where the challenge is use something shiny - perfect!
