My Card ~
Stamps:  Jaunty Reindeer and Forest Ridge are old wood block stamps that I bought at Hobby Lobby years before clear cling stamps came out! 😁  I still love the 'oldies but goodies' and pull them out to use for my Christmas cards along with the 1000 or so stamps I've bought since. 

Sentiment:  peace is a die cut from sizzix 'Seasons Greetings'

Cardstock:  Cream watercolor paper was used for my stamping and painting; Black panel frames the scene; Lavender is my base card

I used watercolor paints for the night sky, masking out the moon. stamped the trees several times with green  and brown inks above a ridge of snow which has Wink of Stella glistening all over it. The trees are speckled with 'Crystal' Stickles (both are difficult to see in my photo~but look really pretty IRL).
