Snowflakes and some Challenges

It is SMOTHERING HOT out there today, so I stayed in and played with some challenges. The first one is from The Cuttlebug Spot, which was to use your favorited embossing folder. I just LOVE this snowflake folder, so another Christmas Card it is...LOL!
The next challenge is at Christmas Stamping All Year Long , which is a really cool sketch using embossing and PP. The next 2 are Daring Card Makers and Creative Inspiration, which both challenged you to use lots of BLING! I love bling, so that was really not TOO big of a challenge.
This card went together fairly quickly. The Snowflake is cut on the Silhouette, and the scalloped circles with my nesties and CB. I got to use a scrap of PP, which is always wonderful, and a nice piece of wide satin ribbon. The bling is Stickles on the snowflake and Prismal Glitter on the nestie. I like the simplistic yet "pretty" way this turned out, so I am sure it will be reproduced with other PPs for mailing. I hope you all have a great day...Thanks for stopping by!
Rubber Hugs,
