Christmas Lodge

How cool is this!  When I saw the sketch for this week at Unscripted Sketches, I knew I had to use the stamp set Christmas Lodge and do some sponging.  And, I am so glad I did. I love the look of sponging to make an almost evening scene.  With this one, I used the new in-color midnight muse and it just really made the card.  The ink was chocolate chip for the trees and the house.  I also used my white gel pen to add a little more of the snow feel to the trees.

Here is a side view of the card!

And the inside of the card!

I am not sure what I like most, the embossing or the beautiful sponging. This card is beautiful and a wonderful way to use the sketch. Thanks for sharing your take on this weeks sketch at Unscripted Sketches.
