City of David

It's time for our mid-month inspiration post for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  I was a bit crunched for time as I had a bunch of things to do and thought my parents were coming down for the weekend.  So, I decided to go CAS on this card.  (Turns out my parents weren't able to visit, but I still like the CAS card.)
 Years, and years ago, someone gave me a LOT of cardbases.  Some were square, some were A2 and some were already pre-cut with various shapes.  So, this is one of the pre-cuts and I thought it would be really fun to stamp my sentiment on the inside and let it be the star of the show at the same time.  I stamped the flourish line under the sentiment in red to add a it of interest to it, die cut some super glittery snowflakes and added two groups of silver rhinestones.  And done!  The next photo shows how sparkly those snowflakes are!
I hope this inspires you to get working on those Christmas cards; it's never to early to get started!
