Cozy Country Church

For this card, I wanted it to look like someone was peeping through the fir branches at a little chapel in the woods. I stamped the pine needles from "Winter Foliage" (the Free with Three Set) in Handsome Hunter onto my base and onto the top corner of fmy focal point mat (which is mounted on Hunter Green and Real Red CS. Asela's "Christmas Blessings" image is colored with Copics and outlined with Stardust Stickles. I also drew some lines down from the roof with the glitter to make icicles. Ribbon is Gina K's Pure Luxury Holiday Assortment and silver frame is SU! Hodge podge.

I am happy to report it is a little bit colder here in Texas! (just a little bit)

I love how you did your ribbon, Melanie. It's unusual to see it just on the corners of one side. It's perfect with the branches coming in from the other side. Very pretty card.

Love your card. I have a church stamp and might try something like that this afternoon when I'm in my craft room.
