Home for the Holidays

Welcome Home. 
That's the feeling this card portrays to me.

It's week 4 at Crazy4 Challenges where I have been the Guest Designer all month. 
The theme this week is to create a square card or any size card with square elements.

I decided to use the square elements on my card by first embossing a square on my card front using a Spellbinder die.  Next, I stamped one of my favourite scene stamps from Serendipity Stamps with black Memento ink cut it into a square and coloured it using Copic markers.  I sponged the edges with Salty Ocean Distress inks and roughed up the bottom a bit to look like snow.
I just LOVE this sentiment from The Stampin Place.  They have such a great selection of custom designs to choose from.  

Adding my card to these challenges:


Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK
