Red & White snow scene WMSC26




















This is my entry for the latest Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and I hope the friend I have made it for doesn't see this picture before the postie arrives with the card!  All the stamps used are by Waltzingmouse (from the Nutcracker Sweet and Asian Gardens sets).  I used Barn Door distress ink to colour the upper section of my card base (applied with an ink duster brush) and lots of glitter for the snow.  The tree has snowflakes instead of leaves with clear gems in the centre of each and I just added dotty red ribbon to the sentiment tag, white lace and a red bow to the top of the card.  It was fun to do and I may make some more Christmas cards along the same lines.
