Beccy's Place Day #17

Every so often, when I get to card class, one of the gals has a goodie for me.  Not so long ago, Judie asked me if I could use a negative she had left after cutting trees on her cricut.  I quickly snatched that baby right up and tucked it safely into my craft bag.  With a dauber, some ponderosa pine ink, a snow flurry stamp, versamark and snow embossing powder, I had a background for this card in no time at all.
Oh, I forgot to mention that Day #17 at Beccy's Place Month of Holiday Cards Challenge is all about Backgrounds.
(Stamps are CTMH; animals are colored with Promarkers and fussy cut; sentiment is embossed.)

Additional Challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for Wishes 
Double D Challenges - Traditional Christmas Colors
I Love Promarkers Challenge #322 - No Patterned Paper 
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #278 - Front and Center (Gee, this was easy!  You should see my craft table right now!  The frame I used is my sos item, leftover from when I die cut the center from a piece of glitter paper I was using under something else. )

Now, I must get busy. 
 I have all of 5 hours before we must collect our grandsons off the school bus.
