Rustic Holiday Home ~ MMC133, The Challenge 18, FMS161

I'm combining three challenges with today's card.  They are:

I actually forgot that The Challenge comes with a built in sketch and I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Merry Monday's challenge was to make a rustic card using browns and creams.  I threw a little red in there for good measure and that incorporated The Challenge #18!  

For this card, I actually embossed the little snowflakes that go with White Christmas, but you can't see them in the photograph.  I used to have the perfect light in my kitchen for taking pictures of my card, but we are remodeling and my light went away.  I'm trying to experiment with different lights in different spaces.  Nothing is working as good as my old one, which I'm bummed about.  I will figure something out eventually, I guess!
I also used my Signo gel pen to add some snow to the trees and house.  I love this cute little scene!  Holiday Home and White Christmas compliment each other nicely and are fun to use together.  

The little snowflake in the corner is a Momenta cut & emboss die that is from Hobby Lobby.

Here's a list of supplies I used.....
Stamps: White Christmas, Holiday Home, Hardwood
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight & Crumb Cake Blendabilities.
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla, Real Red
Accessories: Homemade Holiday Framelits, Woven satin ribbon, naturals buttons, gel pen, linen thread, dimensionals, Momenta cut & emboss die.
