possibly the most minimal card i've ever made!

seriously! i've made a card with like three things on it, and it's practically FLAT, as well! what the heck is going on here?! well, this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we're making cards using an utterly brilliant CAS sketch by our lovely friend amy tsuruta, so i suppose i was inspired by her fine example. see?

patterned paper and chipboard snowman: october afternoon; tag: cosmo cricket; sentiment sticker: echo park; snowflake brad: oriental trading; glossy white cardstock: ranger; ink: colorbox;

it also helped that the october afternoon paper has that whole gorgeous xmassy cityscape on it that i just couldn't bear to cover up. in fact, to fit the most of it on that i possibly could, i made a tall card, something i don't do often enough. but now let's have a reminder of amy's fabulous sketch:
