Snow ? Christmas must be just around the corner then !

I have a card to share with you today, one more added to my Christmas card stock and it was created specifically as an entry for the very first Addicted to CAS challenge which started this week.  Check it out here.  The theme is 'Snow' - perfect for this time of year.

I do think CAS works so well for Christmas cards and I knew my lovely Penny Black 'Snow Dust' stamp would be perfect to use on the design, along with the 'Gossamer Snow' sentiment stamp by Butterfly Kisses - do you think that's enough SNOW for the challenge ?  I hope so...... Ha...Ha... !

The light here in Cornwall has been so bad all day that I had to take my pic under the daylight simulation lamp - at least that made the sparkly 'snow' show up quite nicely. 

I stamped the sentiment using 'Iced Spruce' and the trees with' Evergreen Bough' Distress Inks.  To make the snow sparkle I used Stardust Stickles dusted with Glamour Dust whilst still wet, which makes it extra 'blingy'.

That's it - CSQ - Clean Simple and Quick ! 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Hi Wynneth. Such a pretty card. Lovely stamping. You are right CAS is perfect for Christmas cards and practical as it keeps the cost of postage down. I think most of my C. cards will be CAS this year. Thank you so much for joining in the first Addicted to CAS challenge this week.
Regards Florence x
