Snow Swirled--CCMC179 and Saturday Sketch Challenge 233

I had a few extra minutes to stamp yesterday and decided to use the Create With Mary and Connie and Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge as inspiration.  I'm so glad these ladies do these challenges because they are such an inspiration to me particularly when life is really busy, and I don't have much time to get the cr
eative juices going.  This non-traditional color scheme for a Christmas card turned out nicely, and I liked the simplicity of the design.

Stamp Set:  Snow Swirled
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Poppy Parade, Lucky Lemonade, Basic Grey
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Scallop punch, 1 3/8" punch, white embossing powder, Rhinestone jewels
