BasicGrey meets Friday Sketchers in the snow

I always look out particularly for what's going on over at Friday Sketchers and BasicGrey Challenges, and find they are often great to combine. This week the Friday Sketchers #29 is particularly fab as it is multi-layered, and so encouraged me to break out a number of co-ordinating BasicGrey Christmas papers ... so while I was about it I embossed my card greeting in silver so that it could fulfil this week's BasicGrey Challenge #12 which is embossing.

Of course with Christmas looming so fast there are a number of Christmas themed challenges on the go right now, which means I was able to tie this card in to three other challenges, namely

I used: main image - Sugar Nellie snowman kindly given to me by Cathy (I really must buy a ccouple of these stamps!); sentiment - Rubber Soul; papers - BasicGrey "figgy pudding"; white sparkly ricrac and coloured gems by Papermania; snowflake diecuts by Cuttlebug; sparkly white brad by Doodlebug.
