Winter Wonderland

Happy Halloween!  Today I am posting my third response this week to a challenge at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog, I think we can safely say I'm hooked!  This card was inspired in equal parts by the challenge and the scraps on my desk from a project I will be sharing tomorrow as part of the Amuse Studio bloghop, be sure to check in and see what I was up to!

I love this colour scheme for the holidays - non traditional but to me it still screams Christmas.  The measurements are as follows:

Card Base (sugar) - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
First Layer (bermuda) - 4 x 5 1/4
Second Layer (sugar) - 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
Third Layer (bermuda polka dot) - 2 3/8 x 2 3/8
Sentiment Strip (sugar) - 3/4 x 2 1/2

I stamped the stag on a scrap and cut him out leaving a border - I have to confess that this was pure laziness on my part - I thought I'd see what it looked like before I did the fussy cutting, and I was happy with the result so I stopped there!

Once I'd assembled the card, I decided it could use a little bling - I may have got a little carried away with the stickles - but hey, it's Christmas!

That's it for now, be sure to drop back tomorrow for the bloghop - I'll see you then!

All the supplies for this project with the exception of the stardust stickles are from Amuse Studio and are available here.

stamps: nordic noel, happy christmas
paper: sugar, bermuda, bermuda polka dot

I like what you did with this sketch. Your card turned out very pretty. I like all of the glitter. :)
