Home for the Holidays

Welcome Home. 
That's the feeling this card portrays to me.

It's week 4 at Crazy4 Challenges where I have been the Guest Designer all month. 
The theme this week is to create a square card or any size card with square elements.

I decided to use the square elements on my card by first embossing a square on my card front using a Spellbinder die.  Next, I stamped one of my favourite scene stamps from Serendipity Stamps with black Memento ink cut it into a square and coloured it using Copic markers.  I sponged the edges with Salty Ocean Distress inks and roughed up the bottom a bit to look like snow.
I just LOVE this sentiment from The Stampin Place.  They have such a great selection of custom designs to choose from.  

Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK

Serendipity Stamps- HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Simply Create Too- SNOW/USE MOSTLY WHITE


I hope you get to be Home for the Holidays.  Nothing like being with family and close friends.

Supplies:  stamps-Serendipity, The Stampin Place/ Spellbinder die/ Distress and Memento ink/ Copic markers/ pop dots

Oh, Karen, this is a beautiful country scene, and what a beautiful personalized sentiment from The Stamping Place. That's where I got my stamp for the back of my cards. Hm, thanks for the tip. Too late for this year, but it's never too late for next year...hehe! I love this card. It's so elegant, and you are amazing! Hugs, sweet friend, and I hope you are keeping warm!
