It seems that I start every one of these Tea Party posts with "I can't believe another 2 weeks have gone by!" But, it's true...time just flies by this time of year. I wouldn't change a thing though; I love the holiday season.
This is our 4th Tea Party Challenge, and this time Susan Liles is hosting. She joked in a email to the design team that her sketch was "lame-o", but I totally disagree. I tend to use alot of straight lines in my designs so I found the wave in the background very refreshing...what a simple way to add interest!
The stamp set I used for my card is Tree Quartet from smARTworks (of course). The blue patterned paper for the snowy sky is from Heidi Grace, and the white snow hill is made with shimmer paper that I embossed with my Cuttlebug. It's very shimmery and sparkly in person. In fact, everything shimmers on this card...I stamped the tree with Pearl-Ex blue/gold ink and highlighted with Stickles. The scalloped square is cut and embossed using Nestabilities dies and I added extra fine glitter to the edge.
