Muse ChristmasVisions and my friend Kimberly

I promised my friend Kimberly that I'd play along with her Muse - ChristmasVisions card this week -  who wouldn't want to?  Look at her gorgeous inspiration:


It has several of my favorite crafting, and Christmas-y, things: white embossing, water-coloring, and sentiments!  I had to pull out that darling little Pretty Pink Posh die set that all three of us HAD to buy! at Impress =]  And an oldie-but-goodie PTI holiday set.

For you, my sweet friend:

 
Just in case it isn't apparent, here is how I was inspired: 
  • four separate spaces
  • similar colors [what I could find in my stash]
  • dark card base
  • white embossing
I'd love to have your secret for keeping the white embossing white, Kimberly!  Thanks for inspiring me to try!
 
How will you re-create Kimberly's card?  Hmmmm?  See you in the gallery!
