SSS November Card Kit Challenge Week - Day 1

Hello!
Last week I asked you what you wanted me to create with my November Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp… and you gave me some great suggestions. So, I got busy this weekend, using as many of your ideas as I could. 
So - Day 1's challenge:

Scenic Patterned Papers

Quite a few of you said you find it tricky using patterned papers that have a scene on them. And I know what you mean…
But this adorable bunny paper in the Lawn Fawn Snow Day collection that comes with the kit makes a PERFECT focal point for a Christmas scene. It requires little else really. I used the little bottle of Multi Matte Medium that comes in the kit to add some dots to the snowy skies, then sprinkled them with Star Dust glitter.  This technique is a fun and easy way to customise patterned papers.

Love this frame die - it's perfect for scenic cards like this.

So - that's my first challenge done - and someone else mentioned the Multi Matte Medium - so that's that done too. :)
I hope you like it.
