Snowflakes sparkle - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

Hello!  I'm sharing a card that I made for the the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: CFC70.




Oh yeah.  I can't resist the combo of black & white with one color.  And this fit perfectly with the card I wanted to create.  Prior to making this card, I made 7 other Christmas cards yesterday...but none of them turned out quite the way I wanted.  They just didn't have that "pop" that I was trying for.  Simple, but a little extra...something.  I finally got it right with this 8th try!
This one will be easy to mass produce.  That's something I usually don't do, but for the sake of time...I'll need to this year.
Anyway, on to my card.  After all that chatter.



I love using kraft with black and white.  It just seems so classic.  And it works with the homespun look that I was going for.  In the closeup photo you may be able to see the coarse glitter that I added to the runners on the sleigh and on the horses hooves.  Also, I used my Sakura clear stardust pen on the edges of the stamped snowflakes.  Everything else is straightforward.  I'll list my supplies below.
Thanks so much for taking a look!


Supplies:
card stock: kraft (PTI), basic black (SU)
ink: onyx black (Versafine), frost white (Color Box)
stamps: in the meadow (PTI)
die: in the meadow (PTI)
other: crystal coarse glitter (MS), kraft stitched ribbon (PTI), white baker's twine (SU), paper doily (Hobby Lobby), 2 way glue pen

  5. So elegant Susie! Love the added sparkle and the doily is perfect! Nothing wrong with 'mass production' if it looks like this!
