2015 Christmas Card #11

Today I'm showing you my 11th Christmas card so far this year.

I picked inspiraton from Daen's gorgeous CAS card and I challenged myself using a mist and no DPs.

I used a stamp set from Lawn Fawn to make this scene. The trees were heat embossed with black on kraft and I used my white gel pen to color it. I colored the cardinal and stamped the snow lines. Finally I added a bit of Frantage for falling snow.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:
1) CASE-ing Christmas - CASE #19
2) Addicted to CAS - Birds
3) Addicted to Stamps and More - #142 Holiday
4) Cards in Envy - When Nature Calls

I must follow your example and prepare already some cards for Christmas! This CAS with the cute cardinal and the scene of a quiet forest is just fabulous, so elegant and cute!
I have never used black powder, but it's a very good idea, it looks so well for a clear and clean sketch! The frantage give a beautiful sparkle touch to your card!
P.S. I'm waiting for my new bearings, they are leaved! :)
