Caardvarks Does CAS

Well Caardvarks is issuing a CAS Challenge this time around with a great sponsor to boot! I missed their last challenge with a gorgeous sketch by the one and only Heidi Van Laar :0( so this one is in early this time!

The rules didn't specifically say that we had to make a Christmas card - but all the luscious DT samples were Christmassy - and we've had snow on the mountains around us ... it just seemed like the right way to go!


I used Heather Nichol's Holiday Tree for this one and some dotty paper for the little hills...


With the minimal decorating, I thought Dawn McVey's Signature Christmas had a great soft edge in contrast ... and the white space is framed with gold leafing pen.

I am also entering this card at 2S4Y - they have a great sketch this week - with a little criss crossed embellishment down the side!

So there it is! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Thanks for visiting me :0)

ETA: I just want to say a HYOOOOOOGE *THANK YOU* to the ladies at 2S4Y for highlighting this card in their Fab 5 this week! Wow! I'm thrilled and honoured! Thank you again!

Stunning CAS card Nerina! I love the pops of red you've got from the ornaments on the tree, to the red button, and the red base. This is just an awesome design!
