Playing in the Muse Christmas Challenge

It has been soooooooooo loooooooooooong since I played in a challenge!  My mojo seems to disappear when it comes to other challenges.  That said, when I saw Cornelia's card over at Muse ChristmasVisions #36 - oh.my.word.!  I simply had to play!!

The beautiful sponging she achieved on her card made me want to see if I could manage that too. [You all know I do adore my bright colors].  I changed my colors, and used a die cut from Savvy [Cityscape], and my sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I am happy with my card, but boy, I wish I could of gotten that [amazing] crisp, clear edge of her moon.  Her edging is incredible!!  [Actually, the entire card is over-the-top breathtaking to me]

Here is Cornelia's card;

Good times were had by me today!  I hope you had a good one~


Thanks for stopping by~

Oh my, so much praise - that moon is done with inlaid die cutting or punched in. Its so long ago that I made this card, I don't even remember how I did it. Would have to dig it our of my pile.... - I guess I did not really describe how I made this...Anyhow I am totally delighted you played along and your modern version is just fantastic!!! It works so well with that city scape, I would have never thought of using that for my card...cool, that you have the same stars :)

You are right, her card is stunning. But so is yours. I love the colors you achieved, and the stars are so crisp and white. Don't know if I would tackle this. And I'm with you, I'm finding it hard to participate in a regular challenge....seems like it's all I can do to keep up with the two design teams I'm on, and you have many more than I. I don't know how you do it!!!
