May CAS Christmas Challenge - Guest Designer



Hi there, crafty friends! My card was chosen as the top pick for the very first CAS Christmas Challenge in March and now I am honored to be their Guest Designer for the month of May! 

The theme for this month is 'Snowman'...here is my card:



This is an NBUS stamp set by Wild Rose Studio, which I colored with Copic markers and added glittery snowflakes. I added a sentiment and a thin red mat, and this card was completed! Here is a close-up of the snow:

That little 'snow baby' just slays me...so cute :)

I enjoy all of Loll & Bonnie's challenges, and their CAS Christmas Challenge is my latest fave! In addition to the great themes, I love getting a head start on my Christmas cards :) Head on over to the challenge blog to see more fabulous inspiration from their super talented Design Team...the challenge is open until the 24th of every month, so there's plenty of time to play along!   

Hope to see you there ~ Thanks so much for stopping by,







Supplies:
Stamps: Wild Rose Studio - Snowmen; Clearly Besotted Stamps - Ornamental Style (sentiment)
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black; Versafine Onyx Black
Misc: Copic markers; Spectrum Noir Clear Pen; Tim Holtz - Clear Rock Candy Glitter

What a cute little snow family, and NBUS! That's a double good feeling -- to get another Christmas card done and to use a not-yet-used stamp. The red border and the snow are perfect. Very easy to mail. Got to love that, too!
