Christmas Card Challenges #8

Hey Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my newest Christmas Card.  I am so excited to start seeing my stash of Christmas Cards growing.  Maybe this year I'll actually be able to give handmade cards to everyone!  

Here's the challenge: 

The challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenges had me a little stumped until I stumbled across the metallic ink pads that I had totally forgotten that I owned, and they forced everything into full swing.  I usually attempt to create 2 of each card, however this time I didn't.  I used scrap snowflakes for this card, and I didn't have enough to make another.

Here's the front of the card...
