Merry Little Christmas - Holiday Cheer

Hello Everyone!
It's a new month and that means the start of a new monthly challenge
Are you enjoying the hazy days of summer (if you reside in the U.S. that is lol)?
Well here's my card for today that might help cool you off.

I have created my background by simply sponging TH Broken China onto a white card stock panel, then began 'building' my scene.  To do that, I tore another scrap panel of white card stock to create the snow and die cut the following dies.

Yvonne Creations  -  Pine Trees (YCD10111)

Paper Rose - Reindeer 1 (#16584)

Gemini - Word Edge'Ables Stamp & Die - Holiday

I've die cut the 'holiday' sentiment twice, glued together then sponged the top with the same TH distress ink as used for the background sky.

I hope you've enjoyed today's Christmas card and I can't wait to see what you create and share over at the Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog.

Challenges to share in:
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #501 - ATG option/include reindeer

Thanks so much for stopping by and wishing you a fabulous week ahead!
As always ...
