Snowflakes - Challenges

It's been a few days since I have posted a card. I had to do some things beside crafting and I was anxious this morning to get in the craft room and get a Christmas card made. I am late for the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper challenge, FS195 but want to honor CheryQuiltz with a case of her card here.
I used different punches, stamps, etc. but kept her sketch. I didn't have Cheryl's stamps but my sister had just given me this set that I love. I had to make larger circles but I like it just the same.

My card is also entered into these challenges: The Paper Players challenge #22 - Anything Goes
Speedy the Cat's Friends #27 - Make a Holiday Card
Creative Card Crew- Let's Punch It
Lexi's Creations #26-Anything Goes

Recipe: Stamps- Bo Bunny Midnight Frost Clear Stamps, Hot Off the Press Christmas Words (sentiment)
Paper: SU Night of Navy, PTI white cardstock
Ink: Stampin'Up! Night of Navy, Versa Mark Dazzle -frost
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder-Snowflakes, 3/4 " EK Success circle punch, 1 1/4" Stampin'Up! circle punch, 1 3/4" EK Success circle punch (Paper Shapers), white embossing powder, craft ribbon

Such a serene Christmas Card. Reminds me of a starry winter night with velvety deep blue-black skies.
