Annabelle's christmas

Evening all, I hope this post finds you all well.
I'm not having the best of weeks, a short shopping trip yesterday ended with a huge white van ploughing along the side of our car-although it's caused a fair bit of damage at least we weren't hurt so it could have been alot worse.
I have been enjoying having my craft bits in the conservatory now that we've had a radiator fitted out here-it was only supposed to be for the winter time but I think I may well find myself moving my stash in permanently lol!!
I don't make alot of Christmas cards, normally only for close family and this card is the first of my batch for this year. It's made with a Wild Rose Studio freebie stamp from a magazine, coloured with promarkers. I used my new Lili of the Valley paper pad, Winter Wishes and die cut a snowflake for the corner. I punched the edge of the paper with my Martha Stewart doily punch and added a paper flower. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I added glitter (not so easy to see) and a blue gems to the snowflake and flower:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
