Sparkly Christmas Scene

Hello and welcome! I am really struggling to get many posts out at the moment.... my first in a couple of weeks.  It is the first of the month so time for a new challenge at the  Country View Crafts challenge blog and the theme is Create a Scene - chosen by Rachel Fisher.

I thought I would go a little sparkly on this card -  a little unusual for me! My icy / snowy foreground being gessoed card, sparkly mod podge and some glitter jewels - oh and I threw in some weathered wood distress spray too...
My background was also gessoed (is that a word and how do you spell it!) card. Once dry I sponged various blue paints on it and once dry embossed with a dotty folder. I sanded back to reveal the texture (hopefully snow-like!)
Some stamped trees, deer and a Stampin' Up wooden greeting finish my card.
I will be back at the end of the week on the Country View projects blog - hope to see you there.
