Christmas Traditions

I took inspiration from Tim's 12 tags of 2013 for today's card.
I decided to create a card and combine this with my AO DT piece. The background is created with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I swiped the inkpad across my background and then spritzed with water and then added the stencilling using Tim's Harlequin stencil using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I distressed the edges and added Potting Soil Archival Ink around the edges for definition.
I have used my favourite image from Artistic Outpost from the Snowy Woods Plate and added him to a bauble which I have coloured with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I also added some random stamping using the Ephemera Backgrounds plate. Chitchat stickers have also been used to add 'Christmas Traditions' to my card.
My poinsettia is a little different from Tim's in that I added more layers for a fuller poinsettia, I love it.
Thanks so much for stopping by
