Muse Christmas Visions #60 + NBUS #7 + Simon Says Anything Goes

When I saw Guest Designer Kim Makortoff's card for Muse Christmas Visions Challenge #60, I immediately thought of a sweet Lawn Fawn stamp set I picked up when a local scrapbook store closed in the spring. I know this set hasn't been inked up yet which means I also get to enter another card in Darnell's fun challenge to use some of the "never befor used schtuff" hanging around our creative space or, as most of us know it, NBUS#7.

Muse Christmas Visions #60

As you can see, my primary inspiration was the pine cones and multi-colored pine boughs.

The pinecone was stamped first and then masked before the pine boughs added. The ledge was added next and then the sentiment in red.

After the stamped panel was matted with a chocolate panel and added to the chartreuse card base, a little Wink of Stella was swiped over the pinecone.

This card is also being linked to the Wednesday Challenge Blog at Simon Says Stamp where Anything Goes this week.
