Winter Wonderland

A Christmas card in non-tradional colours using my favourite stamping technique - colouring the stamp with Distress Markers instead of an ink pad.  As You Like It Challenge is asking whether spots or stripes are favourite; mine is spots - so  much easier to fit into any design, not like stripes which have a definite direction the paper has to go.

I used:  lilac polka dot paper from stash, Hero Arts Two Birds In A Tree cling stamp, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Markers in Dusty Concord and Spun Sugar, white crinkle ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces, purple twine from The Twinery, foam tape to pop up image panel, MC sentiment sticker.
