Cardmaking #53

I'm published ... eep!

OK, so all I did was volunteer to make a card but hey, my card is in a magazine ... on sale right now!  I'm pretty excited.

The challenge for me was that I had to make a CAS (clean and simple) card.  For those who know me, forget about it, my cards are typically waaay over the top with layers.  So a challenge to limit myself to just 2 layers (not counting the base) was REALLY, REALLY hard.

If I'm going to be completely honest, it took me three cards to get it right.  You'll see them all during this month.  I used Doodle Pantry's Quirky Snowmen for this card.  Laurie has some great Christmas images in her shop.  And I won't even ask you to limit yourself to just two!
