Winter Trees at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges

Hello again, I'm back with my second post of the day as its time for our new challenge over at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where our theme this time is 'Winter Trees'. My teamies have loads of inspiration for you so pop on over to the challenge blog and check out their beautiful projects. Our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher for Flonzcraft so don't miss out on your chance to win! Don't forget we're a stamping challenge so no digis are allowed.

I began with my frame for this project as I'd been die cutting and had these left over so I decided to use them to frame my winter scene. I used a Clarity stencil and distress inks applied with Clarity stencil brushes to create the background, using a mask die cut from a post it note to mask the moon. I've added two adorable little girls in their winter coats from Flonzcraft, they've been coloured with distress inks too. I added a die cut snowflake, holly vine and asilver bow topped with a red button a a scrap of silver twine.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafting for all seasons: Brrrrr its cold outside
Crafty Calendar: Let it snow
Dies R us: Christmas
Paper Shelter: Christmas card
Simon Says Stamp: let it snow
Sparkles Forum Christmas: Die cuts for Christmas
