Try Stampin' on Tuesday and Inkspire Me 226

It's been almost two weeks since I made a card. I had a marvellous girls' weekend away with a friend last weekend and the Christmas season social whirl has begun. Despite all the good things keeping me out of my craft room, I was itching to get back in today.

The card I've made today is for two challenges: this week's sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday, which was a sketch with an optional twist of 'Peace on Earth,' and the Christmas special: Frosty Forest at Inkspire Me.

The ornament is mounted on two plain blue layers that create just a hint of shadow behind the frosty forest scene, as well as adding dimension. Adding in the 'peace' over two levels turned out to be a problem. Packing layers underneath the letters that were off the ornament didn't work. So plan B was to mount the die cut words onto clear acetate and that worked really well. 

Update: So pleased to be a Top 3 Pick at Try Stampin on Tuesday
