Day 2 - WMS Sneak Peek - Compliments of the Season - Two

Wow -  did you just love the Western Christmas peeks yesterday!  Thanks for all of your lovely comments left.  Today we're moving right along to two more of the Waltzingmouse November Release sets -  Compliments of the Season - Two, a small set of 7 sentiments in varying sizes - and Vintage Christmas Background.  Many of you probably already have last year's Compliments of the Season set - so this will be a wonderful addition for you!
For some reason I immediately thought Silver and Blue with these stamps - so that's what I used for my peeks today!

First, the card -  I silver embossed this beautiful Vintage Christmas Background stamp on Enchanted Evening card stock.  Then I silver embossed this wonderfully ornate sentiment on the same color.  I layered both to Pewter Mirror Paper.  I adhered the sentiment to the background with foam tape and layered them both onto the white card base.  Then I added little silver pearls to several spots on the sentiment and larger ones to the bottom corner.
 Here's what I stamped inside - Don't you love the pretty design and fonts on this!?!
Next I made a little ornament gift tag using the same blue and silver papers.  I simply layered two sizes of the 2012 Heirloom Ornament Spellbinders dies - one silver and one blue - punching a hole through the tops and looping this fun silver/blue Glitter Eyelash yarn through the holes.  I silver embossed this smaller sentiment from the set, cut it with an oval Nestability and layered it to the blue ornament.
Here's what I stamped on the back using stamps from yesterday's peeked set - Yonder Star. Wouldn't this look lovely on a Holiday gift?!

Once again - let's go around and see what the rest of the Design Team has created with these two pretty sets!

We'll be having Day 3 of the peeks tomorrow!  Hope you can stop by again!  Which sets are your favorites so far?
