Christmas at Sweet Stampin' October Challenge

Good morning, time for our October Challenge at CASS....only 2 more challenges to go after this one...that's scary!!!
I've been playing with the Distress Oxides again to create the background for this moonlit scene. The stamps are from a set by Sweet Dixie called Christmas Winter Scene. I stamped and masked to create the forest scene using Versafine Clair pigment ink. The 'snow' is Decoart Snowtex, lovely texture. I used a white pencil to add a bit of 'snow' to the trees, and a white gel pen to highlight the deer's antlers and to add a few stars. 
Apologies for the photo, the frame is white not a dingy beige! Tried to take another but light no better.
Do hop over and take a peek at the DT's makes this month, if you haven't started your Christmas makes yet their lovely cards will be sure to inspire you! We'd love to be inspired by your creativity too so why not play along this month...anything goes as long it's Christmas related!
Thanks for visiting.
