Peace for Muse Christmas and Just Us Girls

Today's card is a combination of two challenges.  The first was the Muse Christmas Visions challenge.  Here is their photo . . .

 And then with that I used the "trend" challenge at Just Us Girls which was to use stacked dies.

My inspiration was that circular image in the lower left corner, and I had a set by Avery Elle that I thought would be fun to play with.  I can honesty say that it wasn't my intention to use the same color die as was provided in the inspiration photo.  But the red with the berries just made it all pop, and I had a red scrap large enough for both a mat and those multiple cuts for that stacked sentiment. 

Love the dimension provided by the stacked sentiment!  I considered adding some Glossy Accents, but kept them on the berries!

If I were to make this card again, I think I'd like to try that "earth" in a light blue.  Next time! 

Hope you find some time to play around with some challenges . . . or to just create.
