CTS2 - Merry Shiny Christmas




For this week's CAS(E) this Sketch:



I almost didn't use the mirror card - it's so pretty, but so darn difficult to photograph! But you need a little sparkle and shine for a Christmas card, right? I used two circle nestabilities  and a Papertrey bow die along with an Old Island Stamp Company sentiment. I used hot pink rather than red for the bow, just for fun!

This sketch is a wonderful layout and can be used in so many ways - if only there were more time!

Smashing Card! Is the mirror cardstock local or from the internet. You've used other colors of it to great effect too, but I've only seen it in gold at stores where I've shopped.

I love your style and always know it won't ever be something I've ever seen before.

Thanks for inspiration EVERY day.
