Snowy Christmas Blessings

Hello everyone!  Happy Weekend!!!
I have a card to share today that I made for a few challenges.



I used the Dec. release from Our Daily Bread designs: Sparkling Snowflakes and Snowflake Sentiments.  I stamped on vanilla card stock with Colorbox pigment ink and then clear embossed, and cut out my snowflake with the custom Snowflake Dies made for ODBD by Spellbinders.  I also matted with Spellbinders 2010 Snowflake Pendant and Venitian Motifs.  The embossing folder is a Darcies ef called Corner Scroll (ACMoore) and the pearl is Recollections.  The little snowflake lacey strip is K&Co paper tape.


 Here are the sets I used:








And the dies:





I used the sketch from ODBD Shining the Light challenge.


 I am also joining in with Word Art Wednesday's Challenge.  They are giving a beautiful free digi word art.  Check it out and be blessed!  I also played in the following challenges: Broken Box Stock –  Happy Holidays, Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge -  Christmas Wishes, Fussy and Fancy -  I Love Christmas, Inspire Me Fridays – Always Anything Goes, Jingle Belles - Christmas -  Anything (Holiday) Goes, Pattie's Creations - include a digi / stamped image –Christmas Card, QKR Stampede –  Holiday Cheer, Stampin' For The Weekend -  Let it Snow,

Thanks so much for looking!  I love knowing you were here!!!
