Maybe Christmas...doesn't come from a store

I’ve had some fun today playing with a new image from Simply B Stamps, Very Merry Betty, and getting in another Christmas card ahead of the December rush.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, I just swapped out the circle element for a snowflake.  To help me pick my embellies I also followed the recipe over at Hanna and Friends using three poinsettias for the flowers, some lovely Christmas papers (the green one does have a subtle design on it, not sure it shows so good in the pic though) and adding a bow in some Christmas ribbon I found in my stash.

As my snowflake is a die cut as well as the tag I printed my sentiment on, I am also entering my card at the current challenge at Card Mania.
