I stamped the trees first, using Versamark and green on top, directly on the card and then randomly stamped some snowflakes. I heat embossed them all with clear powder. The fun part was next - I added colour to the card with distress inks to create the night sky and allow the snowflakes (and trees) to pop! I added some glitter to the trees and snowflakes. I stamped the house on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out, edged it with a black marker and added some sparkle to the house too. I cut out a frame in silver mirri card and adhered it, using dimensional tape, over the finished image. I decided not to add a greeting to the front of the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of silver mirri card and added a Christmas message to the white panel.
I'm submitting this card to CASE-ing Christmas Challenge - CCC#30 - I love Asha's winter scene with the lovely castle. And I'm also submitting to Merry Monday - MM#175 where the team would like to see a frame.

This week has simply flown by. It's so nice to have Ben and Sophie here with us, it always makes going out fun, as I look at things with a new eye! We've been incredibly lucky with the weather this past week - temperature in excess of 70°F in mid October - a lovely Indian Summer. We've been shopping as well as going to to see the skeletons in Northville - I'll share photos later. That's it for now. See you soon.
