Christmas, critters, and snowmen!

Happy Sunday evening all!  Well, Rena's party was a success!  I was keeping the design of the cupcakes I had a friend's daughter make for me a surprise...she used the symbols of Rena's current favorite band on top, and Rena loved them!  YEA!!!  She gave me a couple of hugs during the party, so I guess everything went well!  :)  *warm fuzzies*
Now onto my card for this evening:
I am TOTALLY loving making square cards of late...too bad they won't go thru the mail!    :(  I made this one late last night...I've been wanting to use the acetate sheets I purchased for quite some time now and finally took the time to do so!  The snowflake border is from Memory Box cut out of white glitter paper.  I cut the middle section out of the front of the card and replaced it with a piece of acetate.  The snowman piece is from a 3D tag that Stef of Ingenious Inkling sent me a few years ago after I drooled over these 4 cards she had made using tags she got at Michael's.  Needless to say I WANTED those tags, but by the time I got to my nearest Mike's, they were gone.  Stef was generous enough to send me some tags and shamefully I am just now using one...#NBUS ALERT#...*hangs head in embarrassment.*  Anyhow, I ripped carefully peeled off the 3D part of the tag and used it here.  I like that it comes complete with a sentiment!  :)  I added some of the cutout snowflakes from the Memory Box die cuts to the acetate piece, and this card was complete!
I would like to submit this to the following challenges:
