Pine Cone Aperture card

Sorry, it's taken me a while to write this post, even though my card for CAS Colours and Sketches went up on time over at the challenge blog. We are revisiting our sketches this week and to help there is an archive page on the blog so it's even easier. The theme for the challenge is Christmas (what else???)
Here is my card, which uses the sketch from August 2014, challenge #89
You my notice a sub- theme here for my cards-I have decided to try and use the same stamp set for these challenges, Ornamental Pine. Here I have sponged the background over the top of some torn paper and then cut an aperture. I used the die cut to then stamp the pine branch and added some fussy cut pine cones, one stamped in brown ink and the other heat embossed in gold.

I layered this panel on card stock inside the card and added a gold embossed sentiment to the front panel.

This is what the inside of the card looks like

One more challenge from CC&S before we take a Christmas break, so I will see you back here next Thursday. I am going to spend the rest of today putting up the Christmas tree and outside decorations...really starting to feel like Christmas now!
