You Can Almost Feel the Snow

Hi everyone! Well, it's official. Wreath on the door, presents ready to be wrapped, snow on the ground, singing Christmas carols...it's feeling like the holiday season. Are you ready for Christmas?


If you have your holiday papers and stamps out, be sure to enter this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge--trees.

I went with a Christmas theme for this week's challenge:

CFC 122-Merry and Bright


As soon as I saw this patterned paper from the Silent Night collection, I knew I had to use it. I simply resized the digital paper, added the sentiment from One Little Bird, and printed it. To make the trees more prominent, I added some coarse glitter.

I did one of my new favorite looks on this card: white on an off-white or cream base. I love that subtle look! Here's a close-up:

The winner of this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge will win a gift certificate to Ellen Hutson.



You can link up your projects HERE. I hope you'll play along!

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
