Holly Jolly Christmas Card

Hello! I finally got about 30 seconds of semi-sunshine...just enough to take some pics of my card so I can post it, lol!
 I am really enjoying my FIL's visit (he's here for a week), and the slower pace is giving me some time to 'play'! YIPPEE!! I love it when I get to play, lol.

Here is the card I created today:

I followed this sketch at Craft Your Passion Challenges:

Here's a view from the front:
I added some sparkly wire for the circle part of the sketch. I found this on clearance at Wal-Mart last Christmas.

I added Diamond Stickles to the letters:

And to the center of the snowflake:
(I also added a thin layer of white Liquid Applique on the snowflake.)

Here you can see the Shimmer Mist a little better. I spritzed it all over the card to make it sparkle. I love sparkle!
Sentiment: SU! Christmas Punch; Image: Hero Arts Grand Snowflake; Ink: SU! Ballet Blue;
Embellishments: Ribbon (stash), Rhinestone brad (stash), Fuzzy Cord (Wal-Mart)
