Christmas Card Challenges #10 - Make Your Own Background

Happy Sunday morning everyone!
It's another challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and we would like to see you make your own background to your card this week.

Remember that the challenge theme is always optional, as long as we see a Christmas/Winter card then we are happy and you are one step closer to your yearly goal :)

Do You Stack Up? - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Die Cuttin Divas - Anything Goes (with a die cut)
Stampin For The Weekend - Embossing (1 entry only)
Patties Creations - Embossing
Fussy and Fancy - Dots (made with the embossing folder)
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Die Cut
Scrap Stamp and Doodle - Punches or Dies

Card Recipe:
Image - Trim The Tree Mouse by Designed 2 Delight
Medium - Copic Markers
Glitter Cardstock - Joanns
Gold Cardstock - American Crafts
Embossing Folder - Sizzix
Die Cuts - Polynesian Sails Oval and Large Windows Frame both by Cheery Lynn Designs
Sentiment - Hobby Lobby
Tree Embellishments - Jolees

I used the frame die cut combined with the embossing to make my background, it's unusual for me not to use Designer Paper so this was a challenge for me but I really like the results.
So now it's time for you to get Festive and join us at Christmas Card Challenges!
