Muse: ChristmasVisions 12: Marika Rahtu

I simply could not miss playing at the Muse: ChristmasVisions 12 this week, as the MUSE is the ever so delightful MARIKA RAHTU!  You all know how influential her coloring videos have been for me:)  It was a pleasure to get some of my Purple Onion Stamps out and create a scene in the corner:)
Here is my card:


The MUSE card from Marika
 
I chose to stick to the colors Marika used in her card however, I used my Disstress markers.

After coloring the images I added a few stars from 
Waffle Flower Holiday Labels: Merry stamp set.



My youngest son, Mark, wanted to play along:)
Here is his card: He enjoyed making a stack of gifts like Marika did!


Thanks for stopping by
LauraJane:)

Your choice of colors and the blending looks fantastic. And your crafting buddy did an awesome job on his piece, too! Thanks so much for sharing!
