Christmas Is Coming - CAS Style

Hello everyone how are you? Wooo hooo its friday, the weekend is here, we get to spend the weekend with our it!!!!!!
Ok so on to todays card which I actually made to enter in a challenge............very rare that happens now as I barely have time to look through them. However my fabulously talented blogging buddy Squirrel has a fabby challenge over on Without Words. I've been meaning to enter so many times but then forgot............also it has to be CAS Style...............well CAS doesn't normally like me & it makes my flowers cry & feel abandoned.............
Anyhoo's here is my CAS card.....................
I have to say I really enjoyed making this, so have another flat-ish card to post off to someone ;0) Also have you noticed...........not ONE embellishment...........yeah think we could end up with snow now ;0)

The sentiment is LOTV & I stamped it in Memento 'Nautical Blue'. I cut it out free hand.

I made a frame from navy cardstock from my stash to go around the scene.
The sentiment I shaped before gluing it onto the card, it looked better adding a bit of dimension.

This is the inside & I stamped the Magnolia stamp again, only half of her. I also added a Penny Black sentiment called 'Friends & Family', love this sentiment as this is what christmas is about. Everything is stamped again in 'Nautical Blue'.

The stamp is 'North Pole Tilda' from the new Winter Wonderland collection & I coloured her with copics.
Colours used are..........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32, R20
E29, E25, E23, E21
B97, B95, B93, B91
C3, C1, C00
N7, N5, N3,  
I also added 'Stardust Stickles' to her hat.
To make the scene I inked the card with 'Faded Jeans' & 'Stormy Sky' distress inks then stamped 'Snowscape' by Penny Black in Adirondack 'Snowcap' ink & heat embossed it with 'Snowflake Tinsel' embossing powder. I also sprayed it with Gold Glimmer Mist, its a shame you cant see the glimmer on it in the pics :0( I also added more 'Snowflake Tinsel' embossing powder to act as snow, I did all that free hand.
The snow I made with card, put it in a cuttlebug folder & added 'Stardust Stickles' along the top egdes of the 2 layers.

Well thats it from me, hope you like my CAS card, for once I'm even pleased with it lol.

I will be round either tonight or tomorrow to see you all as I have Payton staying tonight as usual. I'm off now to finish cooking tea, we are having Beef N Ale.............the smell thats filling my bungalow is gorgeous lol.

Thank you so much for stopping by
Hugs & kisses mmwah
