Heather!
You did a FABULOUS JOB going CAS!!!!!!!!!!! (I STRUGGLE with CAS! I have a hard time STOPPING! ) :) LOOOOOOOVE what you've done here---The rhinestones-make me think of the ice in winter, the craft card stock & the twine are a NICE NATURAL TOUCH, the Font is FUN! AND the embossing folder you used, makes me think of the swirls of snow on the ground after a cold blustery night! YOUR IMAGE? STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT LOOKS 3-D!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Can I take more of this blog hop????:) I need to CATCH MY BREATH! :) )

What a lovely card! I especially love the contrast between the rustic pine cone and the bling of the rhinestones. I would never have thought to put them together on the same card,but you made them work beautifully! Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win this awesome set :-)
