One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Muse: Christmas Visions 1

There is a new challenge in town!
I used the colors from Kimberly's card as my starting point.
I die cut the Memory Box "Snowflake" ornament three times out of white paper, having it sit off the paper a bit.  Then I die cut with shiny gold paper and one blueberry sky paper.  I added a piece of acetate behind it so it looks like the ornaments are "floating"  I saw this technique HERE. 
It is called Floating Inlaid and Embossed Die Cuts, except I didn't embosss the die cut, I simply used the gold paper.
I used water color paper and added my blues and golds to it so it shines through the die cut and then added my top layer with the ornaments with dimensional tape.

Congratulation to all the Designers and creator of this new Challenge!  I look forward to playing along!
