Let it Snow card

Now let me make it clear that I definitely DO NOT want it to snow!  I'd be happy with snow for Christmas and then bye bye!  :-). LOL.  Unfortunately, we get LOTS of snow here in Jemseg but the worst of it usually holds off until late December or early January.

Anyway, I digress.  Again.  :-). I've got a card to share today that comes about because of my favourite Christmas card challenge blog, yep you guessed it, Festive Friday!  They've got a great colour challenge this time around.

Navy, white and silver.  Love this combo.  I've had this idea for a card for a while and good thing I sketched it out to remember it.  So, I got out my trusty sketch book and voila!  Here's my card.

I've used an old tree stamp I've had almost from the beginning of this obsession I refer to as a hobby.  First I masked off my hills and moon and sponged my blue ink for the sky and then used another mask to create the second hill.  Then I stamped the tree in black masking off the hill area.  I used my white gel pen for the snow.  I matted this panel in silver and blue.  I adhered my strips of ribbon then stamped the sentiment in blue.  Then I attached my image panel with some foam dots.

I really like how this turned out.  I'm also going to link up to the current Holly Jolly Christmas challenge which is to make a Non-traditional colours Christmas card.  Meaning no red or green.  I believe this qualifies.  :-)

Well, that's it for now.  Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
