Addicted to CAS #77

I'm not always a CAS card maker but I do love the challenge at Addicted to CAS and they're celebrating their 3rd birthday. That means sponsors, a CAS new look to their blog and another great code word.
It looked just like this out our window last Saturday.  I tried to replicate it with a stamp by Penny Black, stamping first in Wet Cement, then offset stamping with VersaMark and white embossing. The background is lightly inked with Tumbled Glass and the sentiment embossed with silver glitter. It always thrills me to see a red cardinal amongst the snowy branches so I had to add one.  It's the one bright spot in winter weather for me.

Thanks for dropping by.

  5. Hello, Bobby,
    what you've done is great. One layer, and it really is a three-dimensional image. This is unusual.
