Winter Sleigh Rides

It's almost time for another weekend - where has this week gone?
I have another Christmas card for you today. I am going to have all my cards readu to be addressed by Thanksgiving this year! This is going to be wonderful!

This one could actually be used for a winter greeting card, as well. I couldn't find any blue dp I liked so I made my own snowy background using a Cornish Heritage Farms background stamp and Versacolor white ink. I used my Spicas to add some shine, but that doesn't come through in the photo. The image is also from CHF, actually 2 stamps, a frame and the sentiment (which is why it is a little crooked - even after a half a dozen tries!), stamped with Versafine Black Onyx. I used Hobby Lobby ribbon and a brad from my stash for the bow. The die is from MFT. The sketch I used comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday
I am also entering the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - bows or ribbon
My Time to Craft - Recipe (3 papers, 2 images [frame+sentiment], 1 ribbon)
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - picture inspiration
Thanks for stopping by!
