Stamping Sensations November Challenge

Hard to believe we are into November already! So as Christmas isn't that far away - our challenge this month at STAMPING SENSATIONS is ' Get Ready For Christmas'
 I actually enjoy making Christmas Cards so this one was a little pleasure for me - and quick and easy.
Oh and feeling rather proud of myself as it's one layer too!
Made a mask for the 'hills'  and the moon then sponged on some Shaded Lilac distress ink.

Stamped the trees randomly in Versafine then removed the mask once the ink was dry.
Then had the tricky bit of just embossing the top without coming down past the tree line....... managed it - JUST!

Some Hickory Smoke oxide used to create the snow drifts and finished with my little pair of reindeer.
No sentiment on the outside as I just liked it the way it is when I'd done!

Hope you will come over and join us this month - SWEDISH HOUSE CRAFTS are our wonderful sponsor and there's some goodies up for grabs!  Just remember - we're a STAMPING challenge and stamping has to be the focal point of your entry!
There's lots of lovely Christmas makes done by my teamies this month too - and they would appreciate a visit.

I am away today at a Presentation Lunch and it's rather a long way away - I am hoping I'll be back tonight in time to catch up with everyone!x

This is a fantastic scene and how clever of you to emboss the falling snow just to the tree line, and the snow drift shading works beautifully and also the lilac behind the sun/moon and the added deer which look great. A really atmospheric scene. x
