1 Christmas Card for 3 Challenges

I made this Christmas card with the following 3 challenges in mind.

Cupcake Craft Challenges ~ Challenge #65: SNOW MUCH FUN

All Sorts Challenge Blog: BRING OUT YOUR BLING

Crafting Life's Pieces ~ CLP 9: SKETCH

I love this image. It is so cute! It is called Zoe & Gemma's Snow Fun from Wags 'N Whiskers stamps. I used different shades of blue and lavender as the main colors, when coloring in the image. I added glitter to both hats, the snow, the snowflakes and the purple strip of paper that is peeking out from behind the image. I started to add white snowflakes but it just didn't look the way I wanted to. So I tried something a little different and punched out purple snowflakes and liked the look much better. After adding the glitter to the snowflakes I decided that it needed just a little bit more so I added blue gems to the center of each snowflake.
