Warmest Winter Wishes

Good morning, good morning!

Here is a card that I made for this week's CASE Study Challenge. I was inspired by the layout but decided to switch it up a little and create a card that was oriented vertically instead of horizontally.

This weekend I was talking with some friends about Christmas cards and one said how she liked the combination of purple and silver at the holidays, which inspired me to use similar colors for this card. I paired SU's Wisteria Wonder ink with Amuse|Studio's Slate ink for a warm and fuzzy holiday card. I used images from the Wplus9 set Fair Isle Backgrounds. I embellished the card with a glittered die-cut snowflake topped with a button. This was a good layout, I need to make a point to jot this one down in my notebook.

Thank you for stopping in to see me, I hope you have a great day!
