Snow Challenge

Happy November 15th....mid month already
and counting down to Christmas...I know 'hush my mouth'
The 15th brings us to a new challenge at
and the theme is 'SNOW'!

Back when I was making Halloween cards I cut quite a few 'moons'
from card stock leaving these nice empty circle panels for future use.
I decided to build my card around one of those panels.

I ran the panel through with a Snowfall embossing folder.
A panel of blue was added behind the circle,
adding birch trees using Impression Obsession Birch Trees.
The little red cardinals are part of the birch tree die set.

I cut three trees using Impression Obsession Evergreen Trees.
Two of the trees were popped at various heights.

The deer were die cut using 

Once done I stamped the sentiment using a SU Four The Holidays stamp
in SU Midnight Muse ink.

The design team has some fabulous creations
so make sure to visit the Dies R Us challenge blog to take a 'peek'
and join in with us!!

Entering the following challenges:
Crop Stop .... ATG with product carried

A beautiful snowy scene! I really love that snowfall embossing folder. Tsk tsk that I don't have it. Your ready-made circle frame sure came in handy for this. I've been working away at Christmas cards. At least I'll be prepared in that respect.
