Snow Falling for Christmas

Yes stampers - we are already working on our Christmas cards for NEXT year!  She who hesitates is lost!!  
I used some newly purchased items on my card (I was thinking I was crazy buying Christmas things AFTER Christmas - but then remembered I do several of the Christmas challenges and so I WOULD be using them before next Dec! Phew!!)
So here you see my new Snowfall embossing folder by Tim Holtz (isn't that COOL?!)and my new Holiday Frames Die from Simon Says.   I also got out my often used Stitched Mat Rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs and a Snowflake die from Waltzingmouse.
The show flake is die cut from Glitter Cardstock and it's really shiny - I added clear rhinestones to the center of the snowflake and inside the letters R and A on the die cut.
 My card was inspired by the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge
I'm also sneaking this into the Just Us Girls Challenge (just in time!)

We're in a deep freeze here in MA this week -  so my card seems appropriately 'chilly'!!!

Paper:  White, Dark Chocolate, Spring Rain - PTI, Glitter Paper - Michaels
Accessories  Dies - Snow Flake Die/Alpine Christmas set - Waltzingmouse, Stitched Mat Rectangle Die - Lil'Inker Designs, Holiday Frames - Simon Says Stamp, foam tape, Snowfall Embossing Folder - Alterations/Tim Holtz, clear rhinestones - Michaels.
