A Card for Sunday's with Santa and Dieing for a Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, well today has been very eventful, hubby took me into Gloucester to Staples to buy a new computer chair, I dont know about you but they always take a time to get use to and this one I think we also be one to take time, as the armrests seem to be in the way, I might have to resort to changing them around, anyway only time will tell.
Todays card again has been created for the usual Sundays with Santa and this week its Snowflakes, and theres a brand new Challenge "Dieing for a Challenge" and this one is being sponsered by my very dear friend Tracy of Dies to Die for, and I thought as its a "Anything Goes" Challenge I thought Id give it a go.
For this card I have created a backing paper by using white card and a snowflake stamp, and several different embossing powders, then on top I have used the Memory Box Snowflake border and the large Snowflake, and then scattered several other snowflakes punched out with my Martha Stewart snowflake punch.
I then created a outer card with some pearlescent card and a border and corner punch from Martha Stewart this one is called rising sun and felt it gave the impression of snowflakes.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
