Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #269

Hello everyone,

I have just managed to get this card done in time to get it in the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge and also for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. 

I have used the Papertrey Ink In the Meadow stamp set which is one of my very favourites. I have stamped the three focal images in black and then also stamped a number of the snowflakes which I have embossed in Detail White.

I have them used a Copic marker B93 to outline around he tree, deer and also the largest of the snowflakes. I then used several Tim Holtz Distress Inks to blend some colour onto the top of the card. I was going for the beautiful colours you often see in the night sky. Quite happy with the way it has turned out.

I then added some Stickles to the centre of the large snowflakes and also randomly on the tree.

Finished off with a vellum label on which I stamped the sentiment and embossed in white. 

I added a white snowflake brad to hold the sentiment in place. I bought a package of these brads ages ago and this is the first time I have finally gotten around to using them.

I am hoping that these last two photos will show the sparkle of the Stickles but very much fear that you can barely see them. :(

This was a really fun challenge and I am very happy with the way the card has turned out. Cross one more Christmas card off my list. :)

Thanks so very much for stopping by and leaving me your comments. I read them all and appreciate it so very much. Cheers.
