Newton's Nook Reveal Day #5

Happy Friday and Welcome to Day #5 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Christmas Delivery"

For my final card this week I went with some simple
watercoloring on the reverse side of a piece of textured cardstock.
I added some subtle shading by making certain areas a little darker
with the watercolor pencils.  
The card front was embossed to resemble a snowy background.

Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
