Frosted Holiday Window


Hi everyone.  Today's card is for two challenges at SCS (Splitcoast Stampers) ... Free for All (F4A144 - Add Glitter!) and Queen for the Day (QFTD140 - Mrs Noofy).  I spent quite a bit of time looking through Sue's amazing gallery of cards.  She is so talented!!  I ended up with several cards that inspired me ... but settled on this card to CASE in Sue's honor.  Congrats Queen Sue!

I kept the frosted look of the vellum window from Sue's original card - just love the look of it!  I changed up the flower spray to make a holiday version.  I added glitter glue to the Madera Corner die and pine branches as well as the center of the poinsettia.  I hope you like.

Paper:  White (Neenah); Old Olive, Real Red, Vellum (SU!)
