SSC115: Picture Frame Scene

We have a new challenge at Sunday Stamps! this week for you.  This week we are working with a color challenge.   Here it is:

I had so many ideas rolling around in my head one of which was to create a picture frame with the Hardwood background stamp.  Since I am still working on Christmas cards and small gifts, it was easy for me to create another Christmas themed project with all the supplies on my desk!   The colors I chose for this weeks color challenge are:  Basic Gray, Soft Sky, Island Indigo and Whisper White.  Here's what I made:

It looks like a framed picture, doesn't it?  I had a lot of fun creating this! Perfect cabin feel to it. :)  All I need now is a roaring fire, my slippers and a glass of wine in hand. -sigh

To create this card, I first cut out a moon shape using my 3/4" circle punch and a sticky note, and placed it where I wanted it. I then masked the snow area off the bottom and brayered Soft Sky and Island Indigo onto the cardstock to create my sky.

I colored the trees with my Smoky Slate Blendabilities (retired) and added little snowflakes to the sky with White craft ink.  To finish off the sky, I added cute little stars using the Confetti Stars Border punch.  The Fine-Tip Glue Pen makes it a snap! 

The awesome Snowflake Element at the top of the card was also sponged with White craft ink and topped off with a Brights Candy Dot.  The "peace" tag is from the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.
