Home for Christmas

It's a double post for me today - and another challenge card.  
I made this card for the CR84FN 43 challenge -the earthy color tones of brown, tan and green.

Still in the groove for making Christmas cards...

Using Gina K Pure Luxury CS, "Chocolate Kiss" and "Sand", I stamped the beautiful pine bough/cone bg with a Northwoods bg stamp in Vivid "Cottage Ivy" ink.  The cottage stamp and the script stamp are both SU and I inked them with TH DI "Walnut Stain".  I used a clear Sukara pen to "snow" the roof and all the snow areas, which gave it a glistening look.  Also used were Spellbinders scalloped circles, ribbon from stash, MS pine branch punch, twine, red pearls and a tiny cedar cone from a tree at our camp that I "frosted up" with Creative Inspirations "Winter Frost" acrylic paint.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
