Blue Christmas

I made this card using Poppi Penguin Christmas Snowball from Bugaboo Stamps. The sketch I used is from this week's challenge at Meljens. I backed my card in Navy Blue cardstock. Each strip of pale blue cardstock is backed in white cardstock. I added crystal stickles to all the white cardstock, image and to the snowflakes.
