CAS Christmas Card August Challenge

Hi friends, can you believe we are half way through the month of August?
I am back again to inspire you to make a Clean and Simple (CAS) Christmas card for your stash!
Hideko is our host and she is asking for trees, you have until the 24th to link up your card with a tree on it!  Please head to the CAS Christmas Card Challenge and play along.
Last month for the CAS watercolour challenge we did some splash watercolouring and I saved this piece of paper and thought it looked like a beautiful winter sky!  I simply added a Penny Black tree die cut in white (that way it looks like it is covered with snow *wink).  My sentiment is from PTI Winter Hills stamp set.  My frame is MFT stitched scallop rectangle frame.

 
Friends, come join us at CAS Christmas and check out the inspiration from the DT!
Heart Hugs, friends!
