A miss, but still a hit!

It's Tuesday night, and I'm back with a Christmas card for the ole stash:
If you're guessing by the color scheme that this was originally planned to be posted for the last Merry Monday challenge, you would be correct...hence the miss.  BUT, the current Merry Monday challenge is Let it Snow, so this card is a clear hit for that one!  LOL!  I had this card all but ready to go on Sunday...all it needed was the sentiment and the snowflake die cut.  Then regular life got in the way, and before I knew it, the challenge deadline had passed me by.  I was bummed, until today when I saw what the new challenge theme was...HOORAY!
Anyhow...I used Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves distress inks in an emboss resist technique over the Snowflakes A-Plenty Inkadinkado stamp.  Silver glitter paper used as a mat and for the snowflake.  The sentiment stamp is from Momenta.  Try as I might, I could not get a decent shot of the sentiment!
Merry Monday #202:  Let it Snow
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #16:  Anything goes or optional gifts galore theme
The Glory of Christmas #83:  Stamp or digi only or anything goes
CHNC #278:  Use a sentiment
Crafty Calendar:  Anything goes
Creative Card Crew #111:  Embossing (wet or dry)
Create and Inspire #44:  Anything goes
Simon Wednesday:  Make it Girlie
Crafting with Friends #19:  Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #226-227:  Anything goes
Rudolph days for April:  Anything Christmas
C.R.A.F.T:  Christmas
Craft Your Passion #309:  Anything goes

Whew!  That was a lot of challenges to sift through!  Thanks for stopping by, and may God bless you this week!
