Baby Boy's 1st Christmas Card

I made this baby's first Christmas card using this adorable image from Karen's Doodles called Baby's First Taste Of Snow. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Fussy & Fancy. I punched across the white strip of cardstock with a snowflake border punch and then used the snowflakes around the image. I punched 2 large snowflakes out of white cardstock and then 2 smaller snowflakes out of blue cardstock. I added the blue snowflakes to the white snowflakes. Then I covered all the snowflakes in stickles crystal glitter glue and blue gemstones. I added more glitter to the edges of the ribbon, around the sentiment and to the snow on the image.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
