'Tis the Season

Muse:  Christmas Visions 16
MFT - Summer School - Hard vs. Soft

For MCV 16 Betty provided a gorgeous layered card with a number of elements to pique our inspirations.  I like making layered cards and included the following inspiring pieces in my card:  colors (some are different hues), gold and silver, stripes and polka dots, pierced and/or stitched panels.

For the MFT Summer School:

Hard elements include rectangle panels, gold, silver, gems, stripes

Soft elements include polka dots, scalloped panel, flourish, script sentiment, lacy circle

Thank you for looking and commenting ... your feedback is greatly appreciated.
