Modern Whimsy

Click here for my DeNami Blog Hop Post.

Fun to try something new, so decided to make a card inspired by Danielle's video for PTI MIM. I followed her format & used papers from MME which worked for a whimsical design.  I embossed an image from PTI Peaceful Poinsettia in white on my MFT vellum tag.  PTI Snowflake Flurries dies & stamps were used for the circles & sentiment. My element peaking out from behind the tag was made with berries from Peaceful Poinsettia.  I added a double twine bow to the side & a red Rain Dot.  Cheerful & fairly flat, so this one is going in the mail.  
Since I used scraps except for the card itself, I'm also entering Pixies Snippets Playground. Glad you took time to come by.  I'd love to hear your comments.

Sorry Dear Friend, I have missed so many beauties!
I'm making myself a cup of hot cocoa and I'm looking forward to discovering your recent posts...

Ok, I'm back ;)

I love this card of yours, it's different from your traditional design and that more "whimsical" style suits you very well indeed!
I love the movement, the carefreeness and the fact that you used your scraps to make it!

Bravo Greta!
