ABC Christmas Challenge - E is for...

We have a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge for you today...Carissa is the host, and the theme is:

'E is for Evergreen'
Feature some traditional Christmas foliage...think trees, holly & mistletoe.

We have two wonderful sponsor's for this challenge:

Prize is a $15  voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp store

and

Prize is a 10 Euro voucher to spend at In2Stamps

I decided to go with trees as my 'evergreen'...using a gorgeous Penny Plack stamp called 'Before the Snow'. I stamped it using 'Forest Moss' Distress Ink...to get the effect of the tree in the distance...I simply re-stamped the image withour re-inking it first. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware, and I doodled a border using a black gel pen.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
