LTSCB Challenge 44 "When Nature Calls"

Hello. Welcome to another challenge over at the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog. This should be a pretty easy challenge to participate in, so we all hope that you will join us. The theme is "When Nature Calls". Your project must contain some kind of stamping (digi or rubber) and something from nature-plants, animals, water anything you can think of. Our sponsor is:
Prize: $10 gift certificate
Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet 
I chose the image called Winterville. It can be found here. It is a lovely image. I was pressed for time so decided to do CAS. I really like how it turned out. Here it is:

Leaving most of the image in its original black and white, I added color to the pines and clothes using a nib and distress ink. I then framed it with the large die from the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles set. I had to cut out the inside of it since it makes a mat. I popped it up with foam tape. Silver ribbon and snowflakes from a Martha Stewart punch complete the layout. I stamped a simple sentiment in red and added stickles to the trees, roofs, and a little ground of the image. I also added stickles to the snowflakes. The inside is just flip of the outside.

I hope you like this and I hope to see your work on the LTSCB blog challenge. This is the last challenge of the year. You have until Dec. 28th to enter.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

I am entering the following challenges: Snowflakes and Ribbon
