Christmas Simplicity

For this card I have used a bauble and chain from the set 'Christmas Decorations and Embellishments' by My Paper World, and the Merry Christmas is from Kaiser, which I have had for a couple of years, but still find it useful.. I have stamped them in red and clear embossed. edged with a silver pen, and layered onto red card from stash.
I would like to enter the following challenges at

Snowflakes

Todays card is for the challenge at
http://totallypapercrafts.blogspot.com/   for 'Let it snow'

I have stamped the background with my PB snowflake stamp, added a layered PB stickeroo, and embellished with a simple embossed snowflake.

Using leftovers

I was so pleased to see the Cuttlebug Spot Challenges are back again. I missed the first one as we were away, but have entered the current challenge with this card.

The paler card is embossed with swiss dots, and because it wasn't big enough, I tore it across the bottom to extend it, and put the  greeting in the space. The Penny Black stickeroo is also on a leftover piece that toned in with the other colours

Decoupage

Today's card has  a type of 3d decoupage known as a pyramage I think. It has seven layers all getting progressively smaller. I have layered the image on a piece of a paint sample from a hardware store, and tied with a narrow pink ribbon from my stash. The base card I have recycled from a photograph album.
I would like to enter the following challenges
