Christmas sketch

This is my card for the Stamp Something challenge. The main image is from a Katzelkraft set of stamps which is stamped in black Versafine ink. I've cut it out with Labels one Netabilities and then sponged some Distress inks around the edge before removing the die. I've then highlighted parts of it with my white Inkssentials pen. The background is white card which has been sponged with Adirondack Lettuce ink then I've stamped over the top with the tree stamp from an Artemio set and also a snowflake stamp from the same Katzelkraft stamp set.

The papers are Basic Grey and I've punched the snowflakes from Basic Grey paper and the swirl is a Sizzlit die.
Well another wet and windy today, so I'm thankful that I'm home now and not got to go out in it again.
Thanks for looking
