Dreaming of a White Christmas

WOW I need to hurry!
My friend Diane (Nellie's Nest) shared this challenge blog with me this
morning and I've been trying all day to get the time to finish 
my card and get it posted and now the challenge ends in 24 minutes!  YIKES!  

It's the Dreaming of a White Christmas over at Jingle Belles Challenge Blog.
Here's their beautiful mood board ...

I also saw the Monday challenge at Simon Says is 'O Christmas Tree' 
so I'll be joining in that fun too!

Here's what I've come up with ... and yes this was a quick card!

I love a white on white card but I just had to add  a touch of blue for the evening sky.  The Sparkle of snow was added by applying Nuvo glue to the die cut and sprinkling on Deco Art Glitter dust.  The background  frame was popped us as were the reindeer.

I'll be back with all the details but first I really need to get this
entered to the challenge before it ends or my rush with be for not!!  LOL

Okay I'm back ... whew! got it shared just in the nick of time.  All product used is listed below.  Most of my delay yesterday was the fact that hubby decided we were going to put up the Christmas tree and add a few more outside decorations since the weather here in Ohio was so pleasant .

I noticed your card in the Simon Says Challenge because it had some similarities to mine in the elements you used - blue background, glittery trees in the background and deer in the foreground. BUT yours is so elegant and classic and beautiful in white. Really lovely.

I love your all white card with the pretty night sky behind! The dies are perfect for creating a snowy Christmas scene. Love that background one and the reindeer especially the flying one! And of course all of that sparkly glitter!

Everything about this is so beautiful -- the frame, the sparkly trees, the regal deer, and your serene evening sky. Love me a white on white card, but the blue really sets it off!
