Another blue Christmas card

Snowy greetings to you. Brrrr, it's cold outside. Once for a change the weathermen were right - we really DID get snow today. And quite a lot of it too. It started snowing in the morning, but that snow was gone before it got to the ground. And then it started raining. And around 5 pm it started snowing heavily and now everything is white - as if it was December already. Not that I'm complaining though. Christmas is my favourite season and all this snow + shops putting out all the Christmassy decorations already (yes, I know it's still October) make me feel we are already in the holiday season. Hence, I've been humming Christmas songs to myself the whole afternoon. lol So no wonder I've been making Christmas cards today, right? ;) Here's one that I made earlier ...

First I'd like to apologize because the picture isn't the best, but I just couldn't get enough light to make a better one. The stamp is from the Christmas peace and love stamp set (same one as the reindeer which I used on several of my previous cards). I really like the look of it. All the papers are from Provo Craft. The smallest snowflakes are made with my craft punch and the bigger ones are Marianne designs dies. I embossed the snowflakes with Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and inked them with blue ink pad. Doily, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.
