This is my take on the challenge this week: and it also meets the sketch challenge: SC401

I finally got started on my Christmas cards...well...one anyways, always good to get started early!

 This is definitely not one I will be able to mail, the pine cone sticks out a mile,  but I wanted to try it, its a sizzix die, "Jim Holtz, Tattered Pine cone) die. works wonderful...

 I used a copper tone CS, which was almost to stiff, and then some stuff my DD sent me to make the snow, I just used a liquid glue, and sprinkled it on...the stuff flies around like feathers...lol

Paper: WC Paper for base, SU Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, WW, DSP, Copic Express it,
Ink: Copics, & SU Marina for sponging, & Black for Sentiment.
Accessories: Jim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Pine Cone Die, Nesties, Distressing tool, MS leaf Die, stuff for snow,  Foam Tape, Liquid Glue, & Love

Blessings & Hugs
