Winter Joy Holiday Card

I was finally able to set aside some time for creating.  The holiday rush is really cutting into my craft time!  This is my entry for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  This card includes many of my favorite items: Cricut Art Philosophy, Wonderland Paper Packet and Designer Rhinestone Brads.  Here is the original sketch from Mojo Monday-

This card only looks complicated, it comes together easily with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Those layered snowflakes add soo much to any project!  All supplies by Close To My Heart except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
X7146B Wonderland Level 2 Paper Packet
C1468 Winter Joy Stamp Set
A1115 A Holiday Stamp Set
Z2160 Twilight Ink Pad
Z2190 Gypsy Ink Pad
Z891 Versamark Ink Pad

Z270 White Grosgrain Ribbon
Z1360 Rhinestone Designer Brads

A better view of the added Spritz Spray.
Design Tips-The white grosgrain ribbon is laid down in two rows with the Let It Snow trim added on top.

I stamped my images with Twilight & Second Generation Gypsy Ink, then applied Versamark Ink on top, then clear embossed.  After embossing, I sprayed the stamped panel and Snowflakes with Smooch Spritz to add sparkle to the card.
