Happy Saturday!

Showcasing a beautiful card celebrating the festive season all over the world! 

Feeling honoured at Time Out!

I love the glow on the vellum leaves and inspired by the beautiful song Aspenglow by John Denver!

I love the pretty SS die and have chosen a Rasperry pink designer sheet along with vellum.
Now I just press the vellum leaves lightly into the watermark ink pad, generally on the tips and edges because I do not want too much of embossing powder to stick. I combined 2 shades of EP  for a frosty weathered look to add color, shine and character. Now heat the EP with my heat gun and watch the magic take place.

Now firstly I stamped the sentiment in the right corner and attached my layered die-cut leaves to my card base, allowing them to quite freely down the card.

Tied a shimmery white double bow along with a satin cord in pink. It has added so much dimension, textures and interest just love the festive feel on it!

 I like my cards to be touchable and have movement. And this beautiful die is perfect for that purpose. 
Added a die-cut sentiment out of a glittered sheet and finished it off with few rhinestones.

I hope you all like it!

It's a lovely card, and although we are flattered that you submit your beautiful creations to our challenge blog, unfortunately it is only open to paper artist with Norwegian post addresses. And the challenge in November was Christmas without the use of red and green.
Kind regards DT Trude Julie
