Good evening or is it good day or morning?
I suppose it depends on where you are, LOL.
My the day's are flying by and the shops are filling up with Christmas goodies. Since we moved house this year I must get my Christmas cards done so I can send them a little earlier with the new address in so I took the opportunity of our new challenge over at ATSM to make another.
Here it is -

As the challenge is CAS, I kept it simple and followed the sketch over at Crazy4 for CAS.

The Brushos came out to create the background which I stamped with snowflakes and heat embossed in white when dry. The top panel had 3 circles cut out to match the sketch then embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Snow' folder and then I added the sentiment, a freebie from a mag last year. 
Behind this card there is a tale. Suffice to say I couldn't find my snowflake stamps. I had them in a drawer then decided to put them somewhere safe earlier this year. So safe in fact, I can't find them!!!!
I shall probably come across them next summer! It's a good excuse for a bit of retail therapy anyway.
The stamped  panel was stuck flat to the card and the embossed top was popped up on pads.

This week we are sponsored by
