Impression Obsession Challenge-Keeping it Clean with Stamps and No Patterned Paper

The Impression Obsession DT members have been busy stamping, inking, and designing their "Stamps Only - No Patterned Paper" creations . I enjoy texture in my creations, which can be achieved quite easily with the addition of designer paper. That being said ,you can add depth to cardstock by virtue of sponging and inks. I like the look of tone on tone ink to paper,as you can see peeking out a little in my tree background. For my main image, I used this super cute "a bump in the snow" I coloured it with my Touch Twin Markers. Here's my colour map!

I also used a sentiment and the star wreath from The Miracle of Christmas set to again, add some additional texture to the card.  I have to say that there's lots of glitter and glitz in this creation, having used Glamour Dust, White Gel pen and a rhinestone flower.
I'm also entering this card into the Ways to Use it Challenge at Splitcoaststampers for the Winter Card theme
