It was a crazy day on Friday. A quick errand to town because DD forgot to tell me she needed a present for someone, a super quick walk in the cold, then some play time in my art room before making several back and forth trips to school as DD performed her second night in the high school holiday showcase!
Before I sat down to stamp I checked out the Friday challenges here at SCS. F4A354 has us playing with snow and the MIX201 challenge is anything goes.
For the MIX, I used TH Distress inks, for the background and stenciled pine branches. InkTense pencils were used to bring out more definition. I used a very light hand with an Elegant Writer pen for the branches. I also used acrylic paint for the snowy splatters and modeling paste for the snow clumps.
The "Christmas Blessings" greeting from The Project Bin's - Luke 2, finished off the project. I love this bold, curvy sentiment!

You REALLY had a busy day....and yet had time to create a card. Your bg turned out beautifully and I like the little gold flecks. The pine is a bright happy green which makes a lovely complement to the bg.
