Christmas At Sweet Stampin' - March Challenge

Good's time for our March Challenge at CASS...a quarter of the way through this year's that IS a scary thought! This month we have an optional theme for you...use stamping on your creation. 
I went for a CAS card this month... my stamp is an older wood backed stamp from Stampendous called Winter Sprite, I love this one and have used it loads in the past and thought it could do with another airing! I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with a white detail EP. Three shades of blue distress oxides sponged over the image and some added bling. I used a wonky-stitched edge square die to cut the panel and raised on foam for a little dimension. The sparkle die was cut 4 times and layered together....another card for my Christmas box :)
There's loads to enjoy over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin', my teamies have been busy creating some wonderful cards. We hope you are inspired to join us this month, remember the theme is optional, anything goes as long as it's Christmas themed.
Thanks for visiting
Have a lovely day

Looks like real ice, only prettier! Gorgeous stamp - don't you just love using the oldies in our stash - you know - those beauties we absolutely had to have, and they lay dormant for a period of time? The new techniques used in conjunction with your snowflake are lovely! hugs, de
