Christmas in the Round...

I played along with a new challenge over at Embellish Magazine... to create a circle card using thier color pallet... the colors weren't too tough but a circle card? Yikes! I think this may be the second one I've ever made... Here is what they challenged us with:

and here is my card:

All products by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamps: Patterned Pines set , Christmas Punch set, Season of Friendship set, Warm Words set
Ink: Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, Basic Black classic inks, Whisper White craft ink, Versamark
Paper: Soft Sky, Whisper White cardstock
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds; rhinestones are from my stash

For the background, I stamped the snowflakes from Christmas Punch with Versamark and then stamped the snowflake from Season of Friendship over the top of it with Whisper White craft ink. I also inked around the edges with Soft Sky ink. The trees are just stamped in Certainly Celery on Whisper White cardstock. I added a few rhinestones and glittered the snow just for fun!

Thanks for the great challenge Ashley!
