Christmas Landscape Challenge

I've had a stamp set by Stampendous called Winter Trees for over a year now.  And the challenge over on the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown blog is just perfect to use this set.  The challenge is to make a landscape on the card.  I got that accomplished!  What do you think??


There are 3 layers over the base card on this.  But now that I'm looking at the picture I just noticed that the words are not quite straight.  Must be the snow is melting under the words....  LOL!  That's my story and I'm sticking with it!


I used some pale blue ink on the "hills" then added some Frosted Lace Stickles to make the glistening snow.


I used a scalloped oval Spellbinder die to cut out the window then I used my Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder to make the top.  Can you see all the stickles I added to the snowflakes?  You may have to click on the pictures to get them to show up.  Now pop over to 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and check out the fabulous inspiration cards and the challenges.
