Rustic Snowflakes

I am kind of sad today as this will be my last ever card for one of my favourite challenges - the Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge is closing down.  I'll miss them as they always had great challenges that appealed to me.  Their last challenge is this:


I was inspired by the wood wall, the pleated white curtains, and the white Christmas tree.


I used a scrap of corrugated card. I brushed a bit of white gesso randomly over it.

Three die cut Tim Holtz snowflakes, a sentiment stamped in a colour close to the corrugated card, and three pale gold gemstones finish it off.

Thanks for the years of great challenges, Merry Monday - we'll miss you!





Supplies:
Stamps - Penny Black sentiment
Ink - SU Baked Brown Sugar
Paper - white cs, corrugated cardboard
Size - A2
Accessories - TH Snowflake dies, gesso, pale gold gemstones
