Billie and Monika`s Challenge: Christmas Manly Card In Gray

I and Billie made since last year Billie and Monika`s Challenge each other. This time is my turn to choose the theme. The theme is: Christmas Manly card with self made background. So here is my card:

I  inspired by Judy`s card here:

I stamped the snowflakes and embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I choose gray Distress ink and blended it on the white cardstock. I then die cutting the lamp and adhere on the left side.

I die cutting too the ground using the curve die. The sentiment is PTI. I stamped it with gray ink.

I hope I you have time to look at Billie`s Blog and look what a lovely Christmast card she made...
