Winter trees

This card is a bit like the style of the previous ones shown here, but much simpler this time, using a Stitchy Bear digital image 'winter trees'. When I saw that this week's One stitch at a time challenge is 'Choccy's Christmas challenge' to use a Stitchy Bears digital stamp, I had a look on their site to see what I might purchase and the 'winter trees' seemed perfect to use with the brayer and Big & Juicy Happy Birthday (toned down by rolling on to rough paper a few times first. I put a post-it note circle for the moon before brayering and masked off the bottom for snow. In real life, the lower bit at the base of the tree looks far more pink than it does here.

It's hard to see the sentiment here because it's silver on grey, but it says 'Season's greetings'.

And, yes, this is my first Christmas card since Christmas!!
