A Card for Sundays with Santa

Good Morning, oh wow yes its snowing a real blizzard here in the west and laying, already we have at least 6 inches of snow and Im beginning to get a bit worried as I have a hospital appointment on Monday and I need to be 20 miles away for 9am just hope we dont have any problems with the roads just hope it clears by then, keep your fingers crossed as I dont fancy having to go through the preparations again its not something Im looking forward to.
Anyway todays card has been created with one of the Heartfelt Tree Stamps and I used a grey flannel ink pad to stamp it with it several times to create this snow scene. This was cut out with my rotatrim and layered up on a piece of black card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of black card and on top I have used a piece of pearlescent card that has been run through a embossing plate and my ebosser, across the bottom I have wrapped a piece of black ribbon and on top I mounted my image and across the bottom corner I have used a diecut sentiment.
This Card is to entered in the following Challenges:-
