The Card Concept - Holiday Gatherings

Welcome back to the first challenge of 2023 at The Card Concept.
Today's challenge is: Holiday Gatherings
Everyone is welcome to play along using the colors, the theme, 
textures, items, or just anything from the picture as your starting point.
I was inspired by the greenery and stars when I created my mixed media card. 

I love creating weathered wood backgrounds from cereal boxes, and this time I used gray and white paint. (Click here for instructions.) I used mixed media paper for my flower die cuts, kraft for the pine cones and stars, and green for the pine branches. I added color and depth using distress inks and waterbrush pens.

Supplies and tools:

Beautiful, I love your wood backgrounds too, your flower is lovely and I like how you used pinecones and the greenery with it, great idea to use stars and greenery to balance it out!
