Pine Bough

Hi there 🙂 Well, July got me in the groove with the Christmas card making, and I’m almost back on track to not have to go through a mad rush at the end of the year…..I just have to keep up the pace!! I love this image from Fred She Said. It’s so classic and beautiful. After printing it on a die cut card base, I colored up the pine bough with my Copics, then masked it off. I die cut 2 snowflake borders, then used them as a stencil to ink the snowy background with Distress Inks. A simple gold sentiment runs across the center of the card. I really love the effect I’ve achieved here with relatively little work!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
