Snowflake tree for 5 challenges {inspired by Hallmark}

Dies - Bitty Banners and Northern Frost (snowflakes, retired).
Punch - miscellaneous snowflake punches that I've had forever.
Rhinestones - retired SU special set from a past holiday mini

Hello friends!   My card today was inspired by a Hallmark flyer I got in the mail (see below). 
See the card in the middle made with the snowflakes? That's where my inspiration started.  Before I started making cards myself, I spent quite a bit of money on those Hallmark cards.  I still think they're beautiful but now I look at them and think "Hmmm... I should try that...I'll bet I could do that". 

Our challenge for you this week at 'ABC' Challenges is to make a card with Snow, Snowflakes or a Snowman on it, so I thought now was the perfect time to give it a go.  I'm pleased with how it turned out, but I wouldn't want to mass produce this, it took me forever to place my snowflakes just where I wanted them.   Here's a closer look at my snowflakes:

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' Challenges - Dies and/or Punches. 
My Time to Craft Challenge #200- None traditional colors (pink is my favorite NT color to use). 
Divas by Design #64 - Let it Snow
Paper Play Challenges Week 49 - "Christmas is Coming". 
Can  you believe it will be here soon!! I've hardly started by Christmas shopping but have a great stock of cards to send out this year (that's my project for tomorrow).  I hope you will decide to join us this week at 'ABC' Challenges.  Myself and the rest of the DT really enjoy visiting many of your blogs and getting lots of inspiration from you each week - please keep playing along with us, we love it!  Speaking of inspiration, there's plenty more to be had from the other DT gals so pop on over there and see what they've made to share with and inspire you!
