CFS Pink Ombre Christmas Tree, and LAST POST for CASual Fridays


For those who celebrate, I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season so far! I have two Christmas cards to share with you today, both using a pink ombre snowflake tree from Sugar Plum Fairies, which is currently on sale!

But before I get into the details, I'd like to share that this is my last official post with the CASual Fridays Stamps team. Michele took a chance on me a whole FIVE YEARS ago, invited me to be on her challenge design team, and shortly thereafter to be on her CASual Fridays Stamps team to showcase her *new* line of stamps. CASual Fridays is the first design team I've ever been on, and I can still remember getting that wonderful email from Michele offering me a spot on her team. I even made my husband take me out to dinner that weekend to celebrate! It's been such a wonderful experience, made even better by the fact that Michele is so laid back and easy to work with. I will greatly miss her, the team, and being a part of something from the very beginning. Transitions are never easy, but this one is particularly difficult with a friend as special as Michele. Sigh.

OK, now for the card details ...


What I wouldn't give to have a real tree that looked like this! Could you imagine?!


The sentiment is from Snowy Sayings. I stamped it in gray to go along with the pink and lime.


I really love these colors for Christmas, and even together outside of Christmas.

I ended up with one more card for the pink ombre tree...
 


At the base is the sentiment/snowflake from Joy and a secondary sentiment from Shalom. Love that I can use a stamp from a Jewish set on my Christmas card!


No layers other than the sequins here, which are totally optional. This could easily be a true one-layer card.
   

 These cards are over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today if you'd like additional information. Feel free to use my code "KELLY2017" which will save you 15% off any purchases at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

Thanks for looking!
