Home for Christmas!

This card is something a little bit different for me...no stamped image...instead, I've used die-cuts (from the 'Winter' Cuttlebug set). I've made this card for a few challenges: I used the Sketch Saturday sketch; the Daring Cardmakers dare to use 'Lace' on our cards; the 'Home for the Holidays' theme of the Winter Wonderland Challenge; and the 'Christmas in August' themes of the Creative Card Crew, Our Creative Corner and Simon Says Stamp challenges. All of the papers are from the 'Figgy Pudding' set by BasicGrey...I stamped some snowflakes (using a stamp set I got from Lakeland) with Versamark, then embossed them in clear powder on the piece right at the back. The sentiment is from a set by Three Bugs in a Rug, the snowflakes were cut using the 'Snowflakes #2' Cuttlebug die, and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.
