Let it Snow

Today's card is the last one of mine in 2013 for Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.  Can you believe it is nearly time for 2014 and if you are like me, you wonder where the heck this year went.  Our challenge this month is Let it Snow so this was a good chance for me to try out my new Sizzix Dots embossing folder.  I have hunted high and low for the Kars Snowflake folder but sadly, it is retired and I think anyone who has one is keeping it.  This one is a good alternative but I did spend a couple weeks obsessing about the other one!
Anyway, enough rambling and I will tell you about the challenge.  As I said, the theme is Let it Snow and the challenge winner will receive 4 digis by our sponsor, Flat Friends.
Be sure to head on over to the Challenge Blog at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to see what gorgeousness the other gals have come up with.
Supplies:
Dies:  Memory Box Bianca Snowflake, Impression Obsession Snowflake Die Set
Ribbon:  Really Rasonable Ribbon
Sentiment:  Uniko Studio's Stunning Snowflakes (What a great find this stamp set was!)
Embossing Folder:  Sizzix Dots
Challenges:
Addicted to CAS - Snowflakes
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
CASology - Snowflake

This is gorgeous. I've seen the Kars Snowflake folder on other posted cards and I like this one better. This card is so elegant, clean, sweet and simple looking, but we all know that simple looking isn't the easiest to accomplish! This is beautiful and so well balanced. Hugs, Gail
