Hi Mynn, I love the snowy tree image and the sequins add a glamorous touch to your sweet card! Great minds think alike - we both used faux stitching - although I'm jealous 'cos yours are glittery! ; )
Have a great week! {{{{hugs}}}} Ruth x

Whoa - your tree is a stamp? 'Cause it's the same image as the tree sticker I used! Great minds think alike, huh? ;) The traditional Christmas colors look super here on your very CAS card!
