Festive Friday, CAS(E) this Sketch! & The Card Concept


Happy Friday friends!  My card is for this week's Festive Friday , CAS(E) this Sketch & The Card Concept challenges.  Love both of these challenges and they fit together perfectly this week.

Here is the inspiration photo for Festive Friday...


and the sketch...


The Card Concept challenge want us to use texture.  I used the Tim Holtz embossing folder on my Clean & Layered card.

 I am sure you can see exactly how I was inspired.  You can't see it in the photo but I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the snow beneath the house.

While I have you I want to share a sneak peek of my latest Trends Article at StampNation.
