It's time for another CASology challenge and this time the cue card is HOLLY. Of all the challenges I've participated in, this cue card is my favourite because my sister's name is Holly! :) The card I made today will definitely be going to her on Christmas Day. 

A dramatic focal point against a stark white background gives interesting contrast on a clean and simple card. I maybe went a bit over the edge of clean and simple for this one but since it's mostly one layer let's take it easy on me. :) 

I used alcohol inks to create a fun background, then die cut a large snowflake out of it from the Snow Flurry dies by Concord & 9th and left all the 'inside' pieces intact. I heat embossed a coordinating snowflake in sparkle embossing powder on top of the die cut and adhered it to the white A2 card base. The sentiment was cut from black cardstock using the Holly Jolly banner die (also from Concord & 9th) with a silver mirror specialty paper behind it. 

This is a two week challenge this time around and this is also my last challenge with the CASology team. My littles are getting more and more involved in extra-curricular activities and life is pretty busy around our house. You will still see me creating though! I'll continue to post here when I can and you can always find me on Instagram. :) Thanks so much to Melissa and this fantastic team of designers. I had a blast!
