All Is Calm

True - it's finally warm, but I these challenges simply inspired me to do a winter/Christmas card!  

I first white embossed the snowflake stars.  Then I took blue Tim Holtz ranger ink and inked a piece of acetate, spritz with water and inked up an acrylic block applied to watercolor paper and spritzed again.  I then black embossed the tree (from Avery Elle - Let It Snow), sponging gray around it.  Finally, silver (light gray) embossed the sentiment (also from AE Let It Snow set).
