I had created the backgrounds with an older Hero Arts stamp, Chalk Background. I used white ink on black glossy paper, first and second stage stamping. I came across the paper when going through papers to select a background for this cute penguin. I had to think black and white, so sponged the holly branch with Distress ink Black Soot. My pops of color come from the berries, scarf and little orange tones of feet and beak. I hope you like this because I really do. It's different and I like it.
This card turned out to be a glittery arty card.

Here is the project I made for you today-
The dies I used were the birch trees and birds from Impression Obsession, and a deer from Cricut Access. I also used Tattered Mists inks to color the tree scene to resemble an early night in the forest of birch trees.
The crafting community is so much smaller these days that even though I live in Australia and as such don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I feel I can still celebrate through my crafting friends. So in the spirit of the holiday here is a lovely bright Thank you card.
November is Thanks/Be Thankful theme here at Die Cut Diva's, and our wonderful sponsors are-
