Paper Sweeties Christmas Sentiment

I recently purchased a stamp set with Christmas Sentiments from Paper Sweeties because I wanted to make a change from my usual stamped sentiment which is "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."  I chose "Christmas is a Time for Wonder" from the set, and using the sketch from the Paper Sweeties challenge, created this card for Christmas 2012.

I used SU's Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler card stock as well as SU's Snow Flurry die and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  I also used the Madera Corner die from Memory Box.  Although it's hard to see in the photo, I glittered the snowflakes with SU's Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  The ribbon and faux pearls are from AC Moore.

I entered this design in:
     Paper Sweeties Design Challenge:  Sketch #2
     Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog:  #75 Christmas
     ABC Christmas Challenge:  Favorite Die  (Madera Corner die)
     Creative Belli Blog:  Christmas
     Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog:  Seeing Double (actually four of the Madera Corners)
