Snowy Christmas Mailbox Scene

Hello! It's Joy and I am back with another creation for Patties Creations Design Challenges!  I am so excited to share this scene with you because I can't draw a straight line and I free-handed this lovely background!  I knew I wanted to incorporate a driveway and snowy hills to show off this Christmas Mailbox.  I first attempted with alcohol markers and distress oxides but quickly discarded it.  I then ventured into colored pencils and odorless turpenoid for blending.  I think it turned out well for a non-artist person.  Anyhow,  I then stamped trees and added die cut trees to the hillsides.  I know this appears to be a simple card, but for me it took some time to figure out how to get the depth and dimension. After checking out my card, please head over to the newest challenge and play along!  You can also check out Pattie's other digital items over in her shop!  If you find my antics creative and sometimes funny, please give me a follow too!
