Starting on the Christmas cards!

Hiya! Happy Mothers Day to all the UK mums! I hope you're being spoilt - or at least being given some peace ;-) I'm here with the start to my 2014 Christmas cards, its for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I've followed the sketch pretty much to the letter, as soon as I saw the die image on the sketch, I couldn't get my brain to think of anything else - so I went with it! I did a bit of embossing and partial die cutting to achieve the result. And I've combined it with this weeks Dynamic Duos colours. I didn't have Gumball Green though so I used Garden Green and combined it with Night of Navy. There's some Wink of Stellar glitter on the falling snow and the white trees & houses but I don't think the photo picked it up. Thanks for looking!

Supplies;
Dies - Nestabilites 'Squares', Memory Box 'Country Landscape' & Poppy Stamps 'Pine Tree border'
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink 'Mixed Messages'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Garden Green' & 'Night of Navy'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Garden Green'
Other - Wink of Stellar clear glitter pen & Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' embossing folder

This is just beautiful, Beth! I must admit I can't even LOOK at Christmas cards until several months after the event (Xmas-card burn-out!). But your card is so appealing it deserves several looks! Love the embossed "sky" and your CAS design. Thanks for linking up with the Dynamic Duos this week!
