My card today is inspired by Birgit's two cards over at Muse: Christmas Visions. I love that she shared two cards and we could be inspired by one or both of the cards. I took a little bit of inspiration from both of her cards. The black silhouette caroler from the first card and the frame from the second card. This was not the plan in my head when I first started out, but I think it turned out ok. Now that I see the card on my computer screen, I am thinking the star should have been placed a bit higher. Bummer. It is not moving so I am going with it. :)
I am also adding this over at Christmas Card Challenges: Anything goes.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stunning card Kristie!ReplyDelete
Love how you've taken inspiration from both cards, Kristie - this is gorgeous in those cool colours! So glad you joined us at MCV this week!ReplyDelete
Your star looks perfect exactly where it is! But I hear you on the 'oh dang it' thing. I've had that happen too - a card looks good when it is in your hand, sometimes a different story once it is in a photo on your blog!ReplyDelete
Beautifully shaded colors - love the dramatic contrast between the black silhouettes and the soft colors.
Love this, Kristie. The gradient blue inking is fabulous. You plan might not have been what you intended, but it turned out awesome.ReplyDelete
Very pretty Kristie - love the simplicity of it! :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card, Kristie, and the star IS in the perfect place! Love it!ReplyDelete

Lovely Christmas card in such soft blues. Love the look of this one; especially how you've got it framed. The star looks just fine, really! I like it inside the confines of the frame. So pretty. BevReplyDelete
