Lattice Window Christmas Card

We've made it to my 5th and last "A Season of Peace" card.

Not long ago with one of my most recent SU orders I finally purchased the lattice die that's been on my wish list forever. Once I received it however it went on my die shelf and sat there unused.
I couldn't think of a better time to make use of it than this challenge.

Note, this card is 5.5 x 5.5"

I started with the scenery background. The trees were stamped with Green Colorbox ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then stampd falling snow with Versamark ink and embossed in white. Using a make-up sponge and Sky Blue ink I filled in the sky. I set the ink with my heat tool and then wiped away any ink covering my trees and snow with a baby wipe.  I cut the image to 5 x 5" and I glued it to the front of my card.

I cut the lattice die from white card. The card front was cut to 5.25" square. I then die cut the window in the centre and glued the lattice in place from the back (at the four corners). Then I stamped the dove and greeting into opposite corners and adhered the layer to the front of my card with foam squares. I then added my bling and some subtle shading tot he doce image using  my Versamark marker.
