Hi, Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
One of my favorite color combinations for Christmas is silver and pink.
However, those colors don't fit in my home, being a log home, at all.

But I can pacify my love of it by creating cards in those colors.  Which brings us
to today's card!  I love a vintage look and when I saw the Flourishes "Snow Scenes"
stamp set Beverly has in her shop, I knew it was for me.
I started my card with a plain white card stock, adding a piece of design paper I
had on hand.  It was adhered with 1/2" Scor-tape.  On top I layered a gorgeous
doily cut from Cheery Lynn Designs Pinwheel Doily with Angel wing
(and this doily is on sale in the shop right now).
I cut an ornament for Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments.
I stamped my cute little children building a snowman from the Flourishes set "Snow Scenes"
with Versamark, then heat set with a silver embossing powder.
Around the edge of the ornament I added Art Institute Adhesive and sprinkled
that with the gorgeous Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Spun Sugar!  I tied a real jingle bell
to the bottom, but you could use the Memory Box Jolly Jingle Bells for mailing purposes
To finish off my card I added 3 snowflakes from
Cheery Lynn Designs Snowflowers set #1 and Snowflowers set #2 I covered with glitter..
I think it turned out beautifully. 
I hope you enjoyed today's post and will "see you" again soon!!
