CAS(E) this Sketch #250 - joyful

I saw a pretty sketch at the CAS(E) this Sketch this weekend, and I made a card using it.

Here's Leigh's sketch:

I stenciled the holiday tree medallion with Distress Oxide inks in the corners, and heat-embossed the sentiment in glitter gold.
I heard good reviews on Neenah paper, so I used it for this card. The stenciling worked great on the paper with the help of Crarity stencil brushes.

I'm also adding this card to the CAS Mix Up Challenge as I have stamping, stenciling, and heat-embossing.

Thanks for visiting me!
