Silent Night

Good morning friends ~ I'm playing along this week with Hero Arts "Stay Crafty with Hero Arts" challenge.
 I'm trying my hand at another CAS style card using Hero Arts Color Layering Snowy Tree and Poster Christmas Carols, which is a fabulous set but unfortunately no longer available.  

I stamped the sentiment and tree image, embossing the snowy caps on the tree with white embossing powder.  I then lightly blended in some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, masking off the bottom so I'd have a clear definition between the sky and the "snow".  The deer is stamped and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The panel is cut using Penny Black Stitched Nested Frames and mounted to a spruce green cardstock base.  

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
CAS Christmas Challenge ~ Christmas Song
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Create A Scene

Thanks for stopping by!

Seems like forever since I've been here, and scrolling down your posts bring a myriad of emotions from your baby shower creative genius, to your wonderful tribute to Sharron.
