Shabby Chic Christmas Card II

Hello everyone,

Here is the second card I made today:

I added a piece of cheesecloth as my first layer, then a piece of cardstock embellished with textured paste stencil...

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum cut out in shape of a banner. The stamp in from MFT designed by wonderful Mona Pendleton.

Shabby bow, glittery flowers and snowy pine branches are laying ontop of another piece of cheesecloth....

I made a keepsake box for the card, added a few blue rhinestones and that is pretty much it!

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Scrap and Craft challenge #15 Shabby Chic or Vintage

Scrap Magic Challenge Beige and Blue
