'Tis the season

Hi there!  Just wanted to share a card with you real quick.  I've had this Belles 'n Whistles stamp for a while and finally inked it up and boy do I love it.  I've also discovered this red/brown color combo that I just LOVE!  You will definitely be seeing more of it.

I machine stitched the front and the inside.  My sewing machine even played nice enough to let me stitch the circle.  I added some glitter to her hat, the snowball, and some snow on the ground.  Then I pulled out some of my Wild Orchid Crafts poinsettias and added some glitter to them as well.

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