Inspired by the Jingle Belles Rock Blog Banner......

 Well it's not the last day for the challenge but pretty close but since we have had 6 inches or more of snow overnight and it's still coming down I had some time to make a card for the challenge. I must tell you I went a long way out of my comfort zone on this, using techniques I haven't done in years if I ever did them except in practice. The banner was saying make a Slimline card so I did. 

First I blended eggshell blue oxide in all over the white panel, then added some dots to the left side  twith the same ink, toward the right I added a Christmas word stamp. then the Pinte tree which I stamped off once. The forest behind inked in Mowed lawn was stamped off two or three times. I just love how this turned out. 

Close up of the words and trees, Both stamps I used are many years old and haven't seen ink in a long while. (they are happy)

The inside was finished with a a stamp I won at the Jingle Belles, I thought it very appropriate to use. I added a few snowflakes. 

Don't forget to check out the Jingle Belles Banner below.
