Sending Christmas Wishes - Sunny Challenges & Creations

This is the first time I have done a challenge with Sunny Challenges and Creations here  but the challenge is dear to my heart as I am getting ready for craft shows.  The challenge is to use the sketch with a Christmas theme.
Here is my card:

 
Technique:
The base of the card is Gumball Green card stock, which is layered with Whisper White , the edges of which are sponged with Gumball Green ink.  The Designer paper is Be of Good Cheer, which I embossed with the Snowflurries folder, then added dazzling diamonds to the center of the flakes.
A piece of 3/8" stitched Gumball green ribbon was placed about 1 1/4" from the bottom edge of the designer paper.
Image: The snowman image was stamped with Black Stazon on Whisper White, and colored with watercolor pencils blending with odorless paint thinner.  Dazzling diamonds created a bit of sparkle around the snowman's body and under his feet.  After sponging all the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink, the image panel was matted with Cherry Cobbler card stock. The bottom portion was punched with the scallop border punch, and the scallops pricked with the paper pricker.  This panel was attached to the designer paper with dimensionals.
Sentiment:  The sentiment, from Joyous Celebration, was stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock.  It was punched with a small oval punch, the edges inked with Cherry Cobbler, and then layered on top of a 1" DSP circle, and then on a 1 3/4 by 7/8" cherry cobbler oval punch. A rhinestone was placed at either end of the oval. I lowered the sentiment unit as indicated on the placement on the sketch so as not to obscure the embossed snowflake on the designer paper.

Stamps: Snow Much Fun, Joyous Celebration
Inks: Black Stazon, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Watercolor pencils
Papers: Gumball Green, Whisper White, Be of Good cheer designer paper, cherry cobbler
Accessories: Snowfurries folder, Small oval punch, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, 1" circle punch, Scallop edge punch, Mat pack & paper piercer, dazzling diamonds, 3/8" Gumball green stitched satin ribbon, rhinestones, dimensionals, Odorless paint thinner & stubbies (non SU)
