Christmas Hearts

  This weeks Christmas card is a combination of four challenges.  It started with a sketch from Jingle Belles, and themes from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, Christmas Cards All Year Round, Winter Wonderland and Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge.
   I have stamped a white card with small snowflakes in Distress Ink Fired Brick because it matched the red card I have used on the left. The white snowflakes are stamped with Archival Brilliance Moonlight White.
  The strip of white card is embossed using a small snowflake folder that was free on a magazine and has three small punched hearts stuck on it. I have also used small punched hearts on the Penny Black sentiment in place of  two of the letters.
  The tree is made from ten punched hearts all stuck together with half a heart for the trunk.
  I have also stamped snowflakes inside as well as on the envelope.
  This works well as a non specific seasonal celebration card too.
I would like to enter it in the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Hearts / Flowers,  Red & White
