Keeping Warm

Keeping warm...that's what the winter has been in my part of the world.  Can you relate to this scene?
Well, here is a simple card made using a great winter farm scene from Serendipity Stamps.
I stamped the scene on my main panel then cut it out and coloured it with Copic markers.  I mounted that onto a piece of red cardstock.  I then stamped the scene onto my card front but left it in the black and white then mounted the main panel over that matching up the scene with pop-dots. 
I added the sentiment from Hero Arts and the twine at the top to finish it off.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Seize the Birthday- MASCULINE

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES


Sentimental Sundays- ANYTHING GOES

Stamping Sensations- ONE FOR GUYS


Hope you are keeping cozy and warm.  Thanks for the visit.

Supplies:  stamps- Serendipity, Hero Art/ Copic markers/ Memento bl ink/ twine

This is wonderful. Karen, but it doesn't look like a warm hello to me. lol I do like how you layered the panel with the stamping behind.
