December CAS Mix Up Card Challenge

This is the last challenge for the 2017 year!  Hasn't it been great to play along and get acquainted with more mixed media for our cards?  And I love that it has to be Clean and Simple (CAS) and yet we learn new techniques all the time.  So here we go with a card for the December 2017 CAS Mix Up Challenge.  I did the tissue paper technique from Loll's blog which you can find HERE.
I die cut the row of trees and stamped and embossed the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by friends, I always enjoy your visits.  This is a quiet Sunday for me, which I love, who knows what the new week will bring!

Heart Hugs, friends!
