Brightest Glow Stamp Set & Wonderful Snowflakes for #CASColours&Sketches

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by a Christmas gift I received and the 500th Challenge over @ CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  How amazing is that - 500 challenges of inspiration - thank you Design Team!  The #500 challenge inspires us to choose a sketch from 2022 and make it seasonal, neat eh!  Please click the hyperlink to visit the blog post and then scroll back to see all the sketches they've provided this past year and then go create a card - just for fun!

Ok, back to the gift, we have amazing wines here in the Niagara Region Ontario Canada, and one of my faves is @ Flat Rock Cellars.  This colours of this fun fancied up wine bottle, had me grabbing my swatchbook of cardstock, what do you think, is the hat and scarf Basic Gray & Pool Party or Basic Gray & Coastal Cabana? 

***  The Trix  ***

*  Create a tiny border with a favourite wintry colour - for me it's Pool Party, and its literally a smidge - a 1/16th of an inch - bigger than my retired favourite, Peaceful Place Specialty DSP, 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" layer.

*  Folow the sketch - while I usually group my sentiments with the focal image of the card, this sketch challenged me to place the sentiment in the bottom left corner.  Emboss  'Happy New Year' from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, #159542 with White Embossing Powder, #155554 to help it stand out from the DSP layer.

*  Keep it simple - use the neat Wonderful Snowflakes, #156340 embellishments for a simple focal point.
