Blue swirl and snowflakes

Hi again, it's very stormy outside so I'm hoping the power doesn't go off!
It's lovely to have more rain though as the place is greening up at last.

I was inspired to make this card by quite a few challenges.

Addicted to Stamps & More has a clean and simple theme.

AAA Cards has a blue christmas theme.

Cuttlebug Mania wants us to use a snowflake and a sentiment along with a manual machine like a Big Shot.
 I used a snowflake embossing folder and a Memory Box die in my cuttlebug.

Inkspirational has a christmas theme with an optional twist of no red or green.

Simon Monday Challenge has a holiday theme.

Simon Wednesday Challenge has a Christmas/ holidays theme.

I used a borrowed snowflake embossing folder (not sure of the brand) and a Memory Box die, (I cut them out at my sister's place so I'm not sure of the name of it either!); distress inks; silver bling and a sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
