Muse #97 + Simon Says Bling is On

This is the last week with Theresa Calvird on the Muse Design Team and her card for Muse #97 has been rolling around in my head all week.

I did make another Christmas card, taking a few elements from the inspiration card: the diagonal line of the background pattern and a whimsical image framed on a larger panel.

A Memory Box stencil and pearl Modeling Cream are used to make the shimmery snowflakes before the tiny sequins were added.

The reindeer image is stamped and then partially die cut so the scarf flows off the rectangle panel.

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is Bling it On this week.

With Theresa leaving the Muse Design Team, voting is going on now for her replacement. Anyone and everyone can vote for their favorite three entries until midnight tonight.

Thanks for stopping by,
