Muse Christmas Vision #36

Hi Everyone,

How exciting - my first card for the Muse Christmas Vision team!

 I made a card that hopefully inspires you to play along. I had that idea in my head for a long time and was waiting for an appropriate challenge - that never happened. I am so happy I finally had a reason to make it :)

So its basically a silhouette in front of an ombre background. That silhouette die is by Paper Smooches, as is the sentiment. The stars are by Memory Box, the stitched die is SSS and the sun is a punch.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Linking up with:

Little Tangles - ombre
Craft Stamper Magazine - take a stamp (sentiment)
House of Cards - Silhouette

Totally stunning Cornelia! LOVE the colours with the moon and that wonderful silhouette - the stars are such a clever 'pop' of contrast too!

Thank you for coming to play in the Snippets Playground :)

Another striking card. That silhouette is so powerful against the fabulous ombre background that you have created, very striking.

Bonnie said...

This is so beautifully dramatic, Cornelia! WOW! Love that rich night sky!

This is breathtakingly beautiful, Cornelia. So simple, yet so striking. The colors are gorgeous and the design is perfection.

This card brings so much peace ... beautiful twilight, which promises an extraordinary night. I love the ombre background, and perfectly matched details (perfect fit silhouette of the tower to the circle of the sun). This makes the card is unusual.

Kim M said...

This is gorgeous! Your ombré background looks amazing! I will try to play along CV: Muse. I'd love to try and CASE your card! :-)

Di said...

Hi Cornelia! I'm so sorry, I only just realised that this fabulous card is your second entry this week. I know you don't want to be entered for the prize but if I leave the card there it does knock the numbers/odds out when I run the Random Number thingy.

So, I hope you won't mind but I'm going to delete it - such a shame as it's a real star as well. Remember though, I don't mind a bit of back linking so if you want to link it on or after Sunday for next week then that would be fine.

We did have a lot of discussion on the blog about the decision to ease my load by sticking with just one entry per week - but I think that may well have been whilst you were in Germany for your lovely Mum's funeral.

I hope you'll still come and play!
