Merry and Bright

I just recently checked my Christmas card stash and realized I need quite a few more.  I loved the sketch at Stick It Down and thought it would be perfect for a Christmas card.  This is what I created:
I created the top by stamping a collection of snowflakes with red ink on a cream cardstock.  The colors match the patterned paper on the bottom perfectly!  Nice and simple and pretty quick to put together.

Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink "Fab Flakes"; Verve "Merry & Bright" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 25" stitched rectangle

Challenges:
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #20--anything goes
Cuttlebug Mania--Let it snow
Shopping Our Stash #331--snow much fun
Crazy 4 Challenges #413--winter/Christmas
Cardz TV #23--anything goes

I thought the top and bottom were two sides of one pieces of paper-- excellent job! Thanks for sharing at Shopping Our Stash!
