The Glory of Christmas challenge 71: CAS

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 71: clean and simple. Please click on the link to see the lovely CAS designs by others in the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I've used papers that were free with a Quick Cards magazine matting the inner piece on to a matt piece of silver. I used stamps that were given with the papers, inking all of the stamps with versamark and heat embossing the sentiment and the lower corner with detail silver powder and the snowflakes with WOW silver dollar to give some more sparkle. The card looks more sparkly in real life.
