Having a Blue Christmas in a Winter Wonderland

Happy Wednesday!  I just want to let you all know that this will be my last post for about a week.  The hubby and I are making our annual trek to Gettysburg starting tomorrow!  YEA!!!  :)  Last night though I made a card for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge:  Blue Christmas

I've seen many cards similar in nature on Pinterest, so I thought I would try my hand at one too.  I utilized my 2011 and 2012 Heirloom ornaments from Spellbinders.  I cut 3 layers of each shape out of plain cardstock to add some stability to the designer paper, and inked the edges with Broken China.  I added white ribbon as hangers and bows, and a layer of glitter paper between the base and main panel.  The sentiment is stamped with Bahama Blue.

I also want to enter this into these other challenges:
