lil' patch of crafty friends DT inspiration for challenge #14

Hi everyone, thanks for dropping by.
Today I have a Christmas card to show you. I have used a gorgeous image called Pink Roses Christmas Angels from Cottage Rose Graphics who is one of the sponsors for this weeks challenge
Cottage rose are generously donating $20 to spend in store on their gorgeous images that you can use in your creations as a prize.

Here i have a side view of my card I have created. 
I decided to go with a centre step card for the card base.

As you see from the front, the card style gives a great 3D effect. I decided to give the Pink Roses Christmas Angels centre stage and keep the embellishments and cardstock i used to create the card with all the one colour to make the image really pop. The snowflake die I used was a tim holtz one and i added a little sparkle to each snowflake with some crystal kindy glitz. The ribbon I had in my stash. It was actually a ball of wool/ribbon i picked up ages ago for $1 from spotlight at the end of last winter.
The little metal embellishment 'Peace on earth' i picked up from ebay.

Click on the sponsors image to be taken to their etsy store and discover their gorgeous images. You won't be disappointed, trust me.
