Just Christmas & Birthday Cards Challenge # 47

Every time I looked at the sketch for the Just Christmas & Birthday Cards challenge, I kept picturing a Christmas card. So that is what I made. I decided to use non-traditional colors in my card just for the fun of it. I used mint green, white & lavender. (It is really hard to tell the colors in this photo). I started by flipping this sketch onto it's side. I added stickles to the snowflakes to give them a little sparkle.

Here is the sketch that was provided:
Punch: Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch (large snowflake)
Punch: EK Success Square Punch
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch
Punch: EK Success Snowflake Punch (small snowflake ~ in the center of each larger snowflake)
Ribbon: Offray Nice & Narrow ~ Lavender
Glitter: Frosted Lace Stickles
