CAS(E) this Sketch #247

I haven't had much time lately for card making.October through the first week of November is the busiest time for me. I did get to spend this last week in Florida for work, so that was nice. I did have to miss Stampin' Up On Stage though. 

I've been wanting to use the Winter Wonder embossing folder for awhile. The sketch for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch was the perfect opportunity to use it. 


Here is my take on the sketch:


The silver foil is difficult to photograph. I guess you have to take my word for it that it looks better than it does in the photo.

Stamp sets: Snowflakes Sentiments
Cardstock- Whisper White, Silver Foil Sheet
Designer Series Paper- 
Ink - Versamark
