Our November challenge is Rustic Winter 
 
The days are turning cold and the splendor of fall is changing to the magesticly rustic beauty of a winter woodland. This month we're challenging you to bring a little bit of that rustic winter to your creations. Follow the graphic or head off on your own trail, just show us your rustic winter creations!

Challenge deadline: Thursday, December 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!




For my card, I started with some Pebbles Walnut Grove pattern paper pad.  I combined some die cut patterns using Verve's Rounded Scalloped Frame die.  I stamped the distressed dotted image from Better Together stamping off a vintage ink for a subtle rustic distressed look.

 
  For the scripture sentiment, I used 2 Corinthians 12:9 Plain Jane.  I die cut this panel using Verve's Rounded Rectangle die.  Next, I die cut and stamped the deer using Verve's Unto Us stamp set and Reindeer Fun die set.   I finished my card with a tag using Verve's Faith Medley stamp set die cut with the oval in Charming Oval die set.
