Holiday Cheer

This is my first project as a Design Team member for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long!  This week's challenge is to use vellum.  There is no sponsor this week, but there is still a prize: 8-6x6in papers.  Who can't use some new paper in their stash?  Head on over to the CSAYL blog and check out the details and the projects from the other design team members.
In real life, this card is a gorgeous eggplant color and I just love it in this monochromatic tone.  I used vellum layers to give it a little more variety without the contrast of a different color.  It really lets the white on the image panel and the sentiment panel stand out.  Thanks for stopping by!

Challenges:
52 {Christmas} card throwdown--anything goes
Lollipop Crafts #84--Christmas in July
The Squirrel and The Fox--Christmas in July
Sparkles Christmas Challenge #18--sketch

Supplies:
Stamps: snowflakes from an inkadinkado Christmas set; random tree stamp; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" (sentiment)
Dies: Verve "Charming Ovals"
