Peace On Earth

Good morning (I sure hope it's still morning)!  I SO shouldn't be near the computer as I have so much still left to do for the holidays, but I wanted to pop in really quickly to share a card I made for a few challenges I like to do.  I have really used the challenges this week to give me the mojo to finish my last minute cards!  As soon as I finish this post, I am off to the post office and get these puppies in the mail!  My card is for Gingerloft Challenge 30 (Christmas and winter), Digital Tuesday #141 (winter wonderland), Joan's Gardens' Weekly Challenge (make a quick Christmas card - anything goes) and finally for The Play Date Cafe #111 (black and white with a splash of teal).

Here is the PDCC Color Story:

Here is my card for the challenges:

I made a super quick CAS Christmas card.  I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Weight White.  My gorgeous image is from Gingerloft called Winter Trees.  I printed it on Cryogen White and lightly shaded the main tree with a touch of teal using Copics.  I added a bunch of Star Dust Stickles to the snow to further accent the splash of teal.  I matted the image with SU Bermuda Bay and silver mirror cardstock then popped it up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from Flourishes The First Noel set.  That is it - another for my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be out most of the rest of the day, so have a good one and see you soon!
