Scandinavian Christmas

Here is my card for the challenge at52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown this morning. I've been taking a break from my DT work for a few weeks as my life has hectic with holidays, birthdays and minor crises so it might take me a few cards to 'warm up' the mojo!
We have a theme today

It is my background which is particularly on theme, the cross stitch hearts. It is actually fabric, which gives interesting texture. I hand cut the window and used a piece of snowy acetate. I stamped the trees and added the die cut deer and sentiment, both are Memory Box dies. I did fiddle about a bit adding other bits but in the end decided to go with this very clean look. This means that it actually didn't take very long to make and so I am entering the 20 minute challenge at Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas  , first time in a while for that too.


 I am looking forward to getting back to commenting, so do have a go at this challenge!
