FWF and CASE Study challenge!


Hello!  Today's card was made for the CASE Study challenge.  I LOVE this challenge and was a top 3 last week! :)  This month's muse is Nina Bracket.  UBER talented!  I used some Basic Grey Jovial paper and cardstock stickers along with a sentiment from the Unity October KOTM.  I hung my ornament on some black burlap string.  I sponged the edges of the cream paper with some Old Paper Distress Ink.  I seriously don't know what I would do without my Old Paper distress ink.  I seriously need to buy a reinker soon, too!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  We are supposed to have our first "real" snow tomorrow.  My Christmas decorations are up, I have started my baking, I only have to shop for my dad and my MIL, and my Christmas cards are just about done.  SIGH....I am ready for a weekend of doing nothing but sipping coffee and watching some snowfall.  How about you?

So beautiful, Emily! I love the muted colors. If only I could say that this weekend could be filled only with sipping and snowflake watching for us . . . sigh. It's going to be a busy one. I want to relax, too!!
