Snow in the Mountains

Today I have a Christmas card to share - using the rather unlikely colors of black, tan and white!
I used one of my favorite Waltzingmouse dies -  the Alpine Christmas die set along with the coordinating Alpine Christmas stamp set.  I white embossed both the beautiful mountain range and snowflakes.
My card was inspired by this wonderful image for the Festive Friday Challenge
 Can't you just smell those yummy frosted gingerbread snowflakes???!!! Hmmm - I love the smells of baking in the kitchen at Christmastime....

It's just a few months till Christmas (gasp!) so it's really time to get going on our Christmas cards so we can relax and enjoy the season don't you think?!  I'm glad I'm getting mine done early!  You have until the 27th to link up to Festive Friday.

Stamps:  Alpine Christmas - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  White, True Black, Fine Linen - PTI
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessories:  Alpine Christmas Die Set - Waltzingmouse, foam dots, white embossing powder, foam dots.

Julia this is such a lovely card! Great take on the inspiration! And I so agree about the smell of baking gingerbread men or pumpkin bread or almost anything at the holidays!!!
