Happy Holidays

One more Christmas card for the season.  Wanted more of a Winter look so I stamped a new background stamp I bought from Heartfelt Creations.  I used dark blue Adirondek ink on white.  I cut apart the snowflake rectangular backgrounds and layered them on dark blue on a white base.  The white border across the middle is from a new snowflake border punch I got from guess who!!  She gets me all the time.  The message in the middle is from JustRite Stamps, stamped in dark blue on white, and cut out with a Spellbinder die.  This is popdotted onto of a die from Nellie Snellen.  The die was a bit too long so I used a snowflake corner punch on each end.  I added light blue chrystals around the circle die and on the punched snowflake layered on top of the dark blue bow.

This was entered in the following challenges:
