Speedy Fox and Friends Purple Christmas

I made this card for Marks Finest Papers Speedy Fox and Friends challenge 188 Purple Christmas. I was a little stumped at first as I don't have a MFP Christmas stamp set, but then I remembered all the gorgeous window scene cards that I have come across lately.  So I grabbed the bare branched tree from MFPs Tree Greetings stamp set and Poppy Stamps Grand Madison window.  I stamped the tree in Stazon jet black on gloss card, masked a circle for the moon coloured the background with distress inks - milled lavender, shaded lilac and (my all-time favourite) dusty concord. I masked some snow drifts at the bottom but the window ended up covering it.  I then added a bit of Signo white pen for snow on the branches. The sentiment and banner, and the sparkly snowflake are Marianne Collectables dies from two different sets.

 
Maybe one day I wont be crafting in the middle of the night and be able to take a nice picture in natural light. Thank you for passing by my blog. Cheers Linda
