My First Blog Challenge

Hey everyone welcome to my first blog challenge post ever ! have issued a challenge to create a Christmas card using only green , gray , black and white .
Here is my card 

I've used a partial retiform technique where you mask off certain areas and sponge along the lines creating a grid effect , then you mask off each area and stamp full or partial images . This technique is so much fun and I'll be demonstrating it at my next class . I was so happy to be able to pull out some of my favourite Chrisrnas stamps and embellishments .  The colours I have used are Garden Green , Smoky Slate , Memento Black and a Whisper White base . I hope you like my card .
