Another one for the stash

Hi and welcome to a post for the brand new challenge over at ATSM.
Here is my inspiration for you.

This week our theme is:-

Always needing to add to my stack of Christmas cards I ignored the up coming festival of Halloween and went with the opportunity to add to my stash.
The colour challenge at CAS-ual Fridays put the idea of snow and cooler times into my head and my layout was inspired by the latest challenge at CAS(e) this Sketch.

To start I masked off a panel on a white base card then added a background of heat embossed snowflakes with a retired STAMPlorations stamp, before inking with Altenew's Minty Mint. My die cut bauble, cut from silver mirror card was a freebie from a couple of years ago and the sentiment is from Uniko. The top panels were popped up on fun foam and the bauble string added freehand.

For more HOLIDAY inspiration, check out the rest of the girls here.
