Snowflakes Are Angel Kisses for Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge

Hello Everyone!! I hope you all have finished your holiday shopping!! I still have to get a couple of stocking stuffer for my hubby and my dog, Woody and I will be all done!!  I mailed out all the packages for family and friends on Tuesday along with the Christmas Cards!!
 A lady in line at the post office asked me if I felt like Santa. I laughed and asked her why.
She said it was because I was mailing out so many packages.  I wish I had Santa's Elves to help me with all the things I need to do before Christmas!! LOL!!

Today at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge Blog, we are being hosted by the
talented Sara. For this Challenge, which will run for two weeks because of the holiday season, the theme is White Plus One Other Color. I hope that you will come and join us!! Your entry will give you an opportunity to be the lucky winner of a wonderful prize from  Dies To Die For or Letraset.

For My Card, I used Blue with White Glitter Dot DP from Me & My Big Ideas and White Glitter Paper from JoAnns.  Since I don't have any of the larger dies, I used Easy Scalloped Frames Template from Hot Off the Press to make the shape of  the card.  I trimmed the points down to be even with the scallops. I used the Martha Stewart Scallop Snowflake Border Punch to make the border.  Before I glued it down along the fold, I added blue sparkle ribbon from my stash. The center shapes were made using the Nested Shapes Template from Hot Off the Press. I used Martha Stewart Scallop Snowflake Deep Edge Punch to make the large center snowflake. I placed a smaller snowflake on top of it, which I cut with a Cuttlebug Snowflake Die. A clear iridescent fingernail charm was placed in the center. I also added the iridescent fingernail charms to the centers of the snowflakes on the border. Halo Tilda from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored with Copic Markers, Prismacolor Pencils, and Gamsol. Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter was added to her wings, halo and star wand. The saying was computer generated.

For the matching ornament, I used 3-D Ornaments Template from Hot Off The Press.    
I added a snowflake from Michaels.   Mini Halo Tilda was added to the center.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit, especially during this busy time of the year!!      
I hope that you will let me know what you think of my card and ornament.  I always love reading the comments that you leave me.  They are all very much appreciated!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!

It's a lovely card! I don't have any X-mas stress (yet), because we don't celabrate it with presents, so it's not too busy here. Just the shopping for food :)
