Christmas in the Spring

Hello Wednesday! Today I am sharing a card with combined challenges. My main incentive was a challenge site I found for making Christmas cards throughout the year. This is a fantastic idea because who wants to be rushing to make them in the midst of the holiday chaos? I found a couple of sites to play along with, so hopefully I can get more done. Here is mine for Festive Friday:
card by Janet Perafan-Babar
I used only Papertrey Ink dies and stamps. I am playing with CAS(e) this Sketch. I really tried to keep it CAS - There is no patterned paper, plenty of white space, minimal embellishments. Although I love the style, I'm not used it, so I hope it qualifies. For the Festive Friday challenge I stamped the pinecone images, brought in the colors, and used vellum as a transparent element (glass). For the Paper Players challenge, my set of three were the pinecones and also the gems:
