CASology-Green is the Word


The CASology cue card for challenge #7 says to use green this week. Now, that I've gotten to the point that I absolutely love CAS cards, I just had to play.

My tree was punched three times and I layered two of the trees on each side of the back of the main tree to leave an edge of white and make the tree pop off the dp background. The tree was sponged only on the outer edges of the top tree.


Recipe:
Stamps-Hot off the Press/Christmas Words
Paper-PTI white cardstock, The Paper Studio/Old World Winter-6 x 6 pad
Ink-Memento Bamboo Leaves
EK Success lg Christmas Tree punch

Ooooooo....you're helping to get me in a Christmas spirit with this visit to your blog today, Benz. And I happen to be drinking a cup of Spicy Eggnog coffee by Green Mountain (I hoard some bags to spread throughout the summer, 'cause it's a seasonal blend).

I LOVE this CAS green card!!
