Musical Christmas

Hello everyone.
This week at Daring Cardmakers is all about a musical Christmas.
We want to see what Christmas carol or song inspires you.
I went with "Winter Wonderland" and "Let It Snow".
I love both of these songs so I wanted to created a wintery background for my card.
Making my own inky backgrounds is a totally out of my comfort zone when it comes to crafting cards but I really love this effect.
I masked off the moon and then created some templates for the snowdrifts and then inked around them.  I used a two shades of blue and a tiny bit of purple to create this card.
I then stamped some trees.  Well they are actually branches from the jar of love set by Stampin Up.
I don't own a realistic tree stamp so I think I need to invest in one.

I then added a little sparkle to the card to look like fallen snow and finished with a stamp greeting.
Don't forget to stop by the Design Team Blogs
