Snowy Village


 I am working on getting some cards made for Christmas.  I wanted to make some more woodgrain background pieces so out came the Elmer's Glue.
For those of you that may have missed it, back in January I did a tutorial about how to create this easy, fun woodgrain paper using Elmers's Glue, a scoring tool and some Distress inks.
To see how to do this go here:

 Next, I die-cut the village using a die from Your Next Stamp and stamped the sentiment from the new Penny Black stamp set called Festive Cheer right onto the panel.
I pop dotted that over the woodgrain background and done.



Adding my card to these challenges:
