Sneak #4 ~ Dreaming of Snow :)

How I dream for a white Christmas every year!

  One of the fondest memories for me is the beauty of the real winter ~ ice skating, find the perfect Christmas tree, snow angels, sledding and beyond!  This new Riley and Company "Carrying Tree" clear stamp set sure makes me smile when I remember those moments!

In case your wondering about the stamp set wording ~ it's true!
Riley and Company's new stamp release will consist of clear stamps WITH coordinating sentiments!  Super fun!

For this card, I used two challenges from SCS.  First up, sketch challenge #SC411 and second, the beautiful color combo of CC401 - such a stunning color palette for holiday cards!

Here is the front of my card ...
And the inside with 1 of the matching sentiments!
 And here was the fun sketch:

And the color combo! Pretty, right!?! :)

One more sleep til the BIG HOP!!  I hope you are as excited as I am!

Riley and Company will be releasing 6 new Clear Stamp Sets including matching sentiments!
