Pink Snowflake Christmas

Happy hot Saturday, peeps!  I have another Christmas card today to try to cool us off, LOL!  It fulfills three challenges:  the FMS sketch, the CTD color palette and the CAS Christmas Card Challenge:

I found the FMS sketch a little tricky, hopefully it is CAS enough for the Christmas challenge, too!  So here we go:

I happened to have a few strips of this beautiful Photoplay DSP in my "hoard", and I backed them with some silver foil strips for the background.  Can you see the angels?  Aren't they pretty?  I then diecut three snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers dies using Rococo Rose cardstock.  They were a little too dark for my liking, so I used my aquapainter and some white craft ink to give them a white wash, then once they were dry, coated them with Wink of Stella:

I put a pretty SU Metallic Silver Pearl in the center of each one, then I did a little creative combining of some of the huge stash of Christmas sentiments I have to stamp the inside:

Thanks for popping in today--be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is so pretty LeAnne - love those papers! A great CAS Christmas card. I made a card with these colours yesterday too and had a brainwave on that sketch, so I’m hoping to put that card together today! Stay cool my friend - it rained all day here yesterday but we’re supposed to be getting temps into the 100s by midweek, so I might be joining you!

This is a pretty color combo and I love your holiday sayings! Well done on fulfilling all 3 challenges! Stay cool....hopefully this heatwave will be ending soon! :)

This is so pretty. I like what you did with the whitewash. I see lots of white space so it's CAS enough for me. That patterned paper is gorgeous. I love how you used "hoard" instead of "stash" Cassidy is maturing before our very eyes.
