Use Kraft Card at Country View

Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Use Kraft Card
I have decided to make a start on my Christmas cards, I know you might be saying it is to early
but at least I won't be panicking at the end of the year.


I started by stamping my image onto my card


Then I added some rocks, grass and stags


Using a Gelly roll pen I highlighted the areas where snow has fallen

I then added a tag stamped in silver ink...I know I have covered the birds but couldn't think where to put the tag. I hope you like this.xxx

I am  entering this into
Die Cuttin Divas "Anything Goes"
Holly Jolly Christmas "Feature a Creature"
Party Time Tuesdays "Anything Goes"
TTCRD "Anything Goes"
Crafting from the Heart "Anything Goes"
Sparkles Christmas "Use Kraft Card"

This is stunning Doreen, I would not have thought to put this sort of scene (snowy, Christmas) onto craft card - but it works so well.
