Hi friends, trying to finish up Christmas cards for special friends and family. 
I made this card for the challenge at Craft a Scene.  The December theme is "A winter scene".
Card Recipe:
Stamps - Stampscapes, except:
Deer- Art Impressions; Snow couple- Too Much Fun (old)
Sentiment -Rubber Cottage
Paper - Glossy White card stock, card base Gina K Pure Luxury, Black Mat
I brayered the sky, stamped the frosty trees, first in black, then dropped down
an inch and stamped again with dark green.  Sponged blue along the bottom
I stamped the branches at the bottom in black versafine ink, used white embossing powder
sparingly, so branch showed through in places and looks snowy when embossed.
The snow couple was stamped on glossy paper, colored and cut out.  When the scene
was finished, I glued them in place.
I'm going to make some homemade sweet bread and deliver this card with it to a friend.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later..............

So artistic. I bet it was so much fun creating this background. Just beautiful Sue. Love that sentiment. It is from my second or maybe third or maybe tied for second Christmas movie. Ha Ha.
