WMS Bedtime Story Sketch #8

 I've used the Waltzingmouse Bedtime Story Sketch #8 for this card to create a little snowy Christmas scene featuring the Milky Way and Northern Lights. The pine forest was built up using second generation stamping all along the curve of the stitch hillside snow drifts.

The Milky Way is white heat embossed and highlighted with distress ink to mimic the Aurora Borealis. The background is misted with glimmer mist for extra festive shine and I've used the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp with pearlescent embossing paste around the aperture.

I've taken a few photos at different angles at allow the shimmer and shine to be seen and finally a close up of the stamping.
