CAS Christmas


It's an icy and cold Monday morning and I'm content to be in my jammies without having to go in to work today! Last evening was a stressful drive home from work and even more stressful was the walk getting to my car in the parking lot! Ice everywhere! I'm thankful for no falls and no loss of power!
I'm determined to get my Christmas cards addressed today and decided to play with two different challenges to add another masculine card to my stash. This is for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge to feature a tree or trees and it's also using the layout for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  I already had this tree die cut and sponged from a previous project, so it was a quick decision to add it as the focal point.  The rusty jingle bells and twine seemed fitting for the masculine papers.  Thanks for stopping by...as always, I appreciate your comments!

STAMPS: Peace on Earth (Verve)
PAPER: Norlard paper pack by Farm House Paper Co., Vintage Cream by PTI
INK: Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake
ACCESSORIES: Christmas Tree #2 by Sizzix, Rusty jingle bells, Jute twine, Postage border Die-Namics by MFT.

I love this card. Rather rustic but still classy. And it's a designer's choice, too.
