Christmas Card Challenges #3

Hey Everyone!  I have been doing much better with posting more frequently now that the holiday madness is mostly over.  I trust that each of you had a great holiday and I hope that each and every one of you have the most amazing year.  I pray 2017 is your best year yet!

I'm sad to admit it but this year I didn't hand out 1 handmade Christmas Card, because I didn't have enough in my stash for everyone, so didn't think it fair that only some people got handmade cards and that others didn't.
That's why I am so grateful to be on the Design Team for Christmas Card Challenges, because its going to force me to get all my Christmas Cards done this year so that everyone of my family and friends can receive a handmade card from me.

I am here this week to share with you Christmas Card Challenge #3.
If you want to play along please visit the blog for challenge rules.
Here's this weeks challenge:

I struggled quite a bit with this challenge, because I wasn't sure what to use with the colour scheme.  I was thrilled though that my Christmas gift from my amazing boyfriend would really help with this challenge, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the way that this card turned out.  Not to mention that playing with new goodies is always a good time.  Its all I want to do currently is just play with my new goodies!

I love how these images, and sentiments could be used to create a variety of scenes and winter scenes, and how you can use them for other seasons too.

Here's the front view of the card...
