Merry Everything

Hello crafty friends! I'm back! Yay! I've been out, travelling for almost the whole month of September, visiting family abroad. I had a wonderful time, but I am happy to be back.
It took me over a week to catch up with everything and finally yesterday had some time to get crafty.
I made this card for this week challenge at CAS(E) this sketch.

I was truly inspired by the samples and love the sketch! I decided to make a window card with 'floating' Christmas trees, inspired by this one made by one of my Crafty Idols Kristina Werner.

To suspend the trees I used fishing line. Behind the window I put a 4" by 5.25" piece of pattern paper to cover the space where I'm going to write my message for the recipient. I really like my card, it feels so nice to get crafty again and it was a good way to start my Christmas cards stash for this year.
Here is another view

All the papers are by Stampin' Up! and the tree die is by Hero Arts. The sentiment is by SSS.
Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed week.
