let it snow (MFW Elegant & Classy)

okay, here's today's post #3! i can't guarantee that i won't be posting again today... depends on whether i feel ambitious enough to create one more thing, but probably not, since i'm going with the family to a Labor Day BBQ in an hour :D
this card was created for the elegant and classy challenge over at Moxie Fab World (Holiday Challenges). i immediately got an idea for the papers i wanted to use (DCWV--Doodle Stack and some Bright Mats) as well as the design. i *love* it when that happens :D
i also love using punches, but sometimes forget that i have them... i used a variety of Marvy (for the regular and scalloped squares), Fiskars (border), and Martha Stewart punches (two different snowflake styles) for this card. the rest is just some bling (Kaiser) and ribbon (Michael's double faced satin).
oh, that stamp is from The Paper Company, and i used some VersaMark Chalk Ink with some clear embossing powder. i know the sentiment is subtle, but i thought it was really classy, hence my decision to use it!
i just want to thank Cath over at MFW for hosting such lovely challenges... i wish i had seen them earlier, and i could have submitted more :D hehe. also, go check out Heidi's interpretation of another challenge, the fun and cute Christmas--she will make you smile, guaranteed.
well, thanks for looking, and hope you enjoy! let me know what you think, it's so much fun reading all your comments.

This one is truly gorgeous and classy. Those tiny snowflakes on a layered and geometric background just make me want to squeal. I won't, don't worry, but yeah...seriously. The pearls are precious too. Great card!
