Festive Friday #39

The latest Christmas challenge with Festive Friday,
is this holiday rustic photo:

What inspires you?
For me, the lively boughs, the rustic sign,
that wonderful festive script!
No one does beautiful Christmas script like Waltzingmouse Stamps.
(Not to mention their Festive Foliage stamps and dies!)

Played around with colors on the top die cut, 
stamping and rolling in 
PTI's Pinefeather, Dark Chocolate and Ocean Tides Inks.
All is Bright DP from My Minds Eye.
Stamped more pine boughs on the bottom frame in 
PTI Classic Kraft Ink.
Sentiment is embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang's 
Midnight Copper.
A bit of Viva Glitter Liner on the pine and cones.

A 2 weeker at Festive Friday.
Join the fun here:
