A Christmas Card

I thought I better get started on the Christmas cards for this year so that I don't have to make hundreds in one panicked weekend nearer the time.

I made this one to fit with three different challenges:
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #146 - Black and White only
Totally PaperCrafts Challenge #78 - Holidays
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #176 - No Designer Papers

To make this card I had a go at stamping some images (something I'm slowly getting better at but still need more practice!). The bauble is from a papermania set and the sentiment was from a Christmas set I found but have no idea of the make. I stamped the corner with a Martha Stewart stamp and embossed some white paper with the snowflake design (I need to use card next time as the paper was not really thick enough but I didn't have any so paper had to do).
