Let it Snow!

How are you coming along with your Christmas cards? I'm down to needing less than 10! It's been fabulous making them all year for different challenges - they're as much of a pleasure as they should be and all different which is even better.
This one is for several challenges and I'll tell you about those in a moment. First I'll tell you what I've used. The two bps are from the gold collection and the polished stone collection. The gold one is 8x8 which makes it very easy to resize to fit onto a 6x6 without having to cut any of the design away. The white mat is made from white pearlescent paper cut out using the robo before putting it through an embossing folder. This one is a new one and a new company to me too. It's made by efco and the embossing is lovely and deep. The snowman snowglobe is from a pre-coloured sheet and I've re-sized the star from the gold embellishments sheet and added them to the base in my graphics program before I printed it off. The text is computer generated. The two snowflakes were part of a challenge prize I won recently and are from Kanban.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
I hope your day is going well, thank you for calling by.
