Another CAS! *KKC07*

Yes!  It's time for another Ka-Pow Kreative Challenge!  This week is a sketch challenge and it looks like this......
I took creative license after I saw Carrie Gaskin's sample, which is stunning as usual, and loosely interpreted the sketch.  I'm also entering this in The Paper Player's #75 Challenge where we are to use non-traditional christmas colors.  I used my new Stocking Accents die.  I have had so much fun playing around with all the shapes and the only one I hadn't used yet was the christmas bulb.  I figured it would work well for this sketch.  I am so totally in love with the glimmer paper too (both silver and red).  It adds soooo much!  I suprised myself by making another relatively clean and simple card.  I am coming down to the end of my silver cord and desperately want some more, but SU! doesn't carry it anymore.....does anyone know where a person could get some?  Keep in mind that I live in a rural area and don't live near any mega craft stores, but I can buy on-line!  Anywhooo, I had a ton of fun making this card and might just bust out a few more for to send out....if I can get somemore of that darn silver cord that is!
Here are the supplies I used...
Stamps: Peace on Earth from CTMH
Paper: Marina Mist, Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Lucky Limeade, Crushed Curry, White, Silver Glimmer
Ink: same as above
Accessories: Stocking Accents die, Silver cord, Swirly and Swill Dot EF
Thanks for taking a peek!
