DP2 Challenge 8

Wow
Wow! Do you ever just feel the need to lay down after you've struggled with a card for so long?!?! LOL That's sort of how I feel after this one. I do love the result here but man it was almost painful to get to this point. Im still not totally happy with a few aspects but at some point you just have to walk away... and well, I need to walk away. So! This is my entry for the DP2 Challenge #8, over at The Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog site the challenge was to use 2 of Mo's images (a big challenge) in a Christmas SCENE (good golly! Another challenge) I was determined to do it and it might have been easier, had I a printer at home and a program I could use to merge them, however I do that at work, print them and bring them home, so what I had at home was what I had to work with! So after an entire day of labouring over it (dont feel too sorry for me, I'm a anal freak, and it's a labour of love! LOL) I've come up with this cute Winter delivery card.
Whew! Gonna go lay down now....well, after I post the incredible photos of my disaster zone of a scrapbook room.... then I must go clean it up!! Then if I've not started another project...go lay down.

I love your use of a step card for this challenge. What a great solution when you don't have editing software for merging images. It looks like the card isn't a typical step card - I would love to see a template if you were able to share!
