Wintry Pine Cones

This is my second post for today and it's a card for the new CAS(E) This Sketch challenge and was also inspired by the photo for The Card Concept Challenge.  There is a wintry look outside with a weather forecast of snow along the coast of VA later tonight. Hopefully we won't get anything here in the valley, but you never can tell! That also influenced me to create a subtle snowy background to this design as did the inspiration photo. I balled up a sheet of copy paper then dabbed it onto Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers distess oxide ink pads and smooshed it lightly onto some white card stock. I then used a snowflake stencil and embossed some Liquitex light modeling paste over the corner area.

The Botanicuts Pine Bough die set was cut, sponged and assembled
next. I finished it off with a twine bow and a tiny sentiment tag.

STAMPS: Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You (The Greetery).
PAPER: Tempting Turquoise (SU); Scraps of green for the pine boughs; Kraft, White (Papertrey Ink). 
DIES: Nordic Frames, Botanicuts Pine Bough, Sentiment Suite Basics - all by The Greetery.
OTHER: Snowflake Stencil (The Greetery). 

Thanks so much for stopping and commenting!    ~Wanda

I love your cluster of pinecones, and that border die is divine! A great way to interpret our Card Concept photo this week! Thanks for playing!
