Simply Beautiful

My 4th and final GDT post for 
I'd like to start by thanking the team at SOS
for allowing me the privilege of joining them through
October. I've truly enjoyed making all the projects..
and I think this one is my favourite of all.

As soon as I saw the prompt I knew what I wanted to do.
I have tree stamps...many tree stamps...I LOVE trees!
The set I chose to use are from Creative Expression's
"Create a Scene" collection(which may be discontinued)
Skeleton trees look so magnificent against a wintery sky
so I used an assortment of ink pads, torn paper and brushes ...
to create a sort of landscape...
before overstamping with Archival black ink.
A little more work with ink and brush to blend the scene...
and a hint of glitter on the moon/sun and ground to 
let the magic of the season sparkle through :D
I wanted to keep the card CAS
 so I simply stamped the sentiment straight onto the card too.

Whatever your beliefs I wish you all a 
beautiful season of peace and love.
Enjoy :D XXX
