Winter Window

A little bit of scene building today, along with some die cutting, to make another Christmas card to add to my ever growing collection.
 The only ink I used on this card was Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink (not Crippled Sapphire as my Mum misread it!), along with three stamps, some torn paper and a Clarity dusting brush.  The sentiment stamp is from a Buzzcraft set, the tree stamp is from a Clarity set, and the sleigh and reindeer stamp is by Inkylicious.
The window frame was made with my Memory Box Madison Window die and the cat was made from navy card, with an Xcut die from a Build-a-Scene set.
All this fitted very nicely onto an A6 card blank to give a clean and simple card, a great way to use up those small cards that have been lurking in my stash since the dawn of time!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Double D - Trees
Addicted to Stamps - #131 - Trees, Branches or Leaves
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Shabby Chic and/or Monochrome - I chose Monochrome
Crafty Friends - #40 - Monochrome
Creative Corner - No Patterned Paper
Craft Rocket - #24 - Mostly Blue

  13. Oh I just adore your winter window scene. The bare trees outside are a hint of what's to come! I have that window die too and love it for all seasons! That black cat walking across the sill is a lovely addition, he's smart, inside where it's nice and warm.
