CASE Study #115

I have been an admirer for Angeline's work. This talented card maker is the November Muse over CASE Study, I couldn't help joining the fun and made a card inspired by her two cards.
 I don't have any delicate-looking diecut set, so I decided to use a stamp and let the stamp do the "talking"...
{ 'tis the season)
Paper: Bazzill, Stamps: Winter Trees by Hero Arts, Accessories: Martha Stewart glitter, SRM Sticker (sentiment), gemstones (Michael's).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stunning! I love the blue stripes and the glitter. The embossed trees are gorgeous! I think it's great that you didn't use a die cut. It makes it more your vision than a copy. Love that sentiment - great mixture of fonts.
