Christmas Card for Two Challenges

I made this card for two challenges. First, I used the Stamping 411 Sketch#233 here. And second, I used the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#179 here. The colors to use are Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade and Basic Gray.
Basic Gray is the base and I added some Lucky Limeade. I stamped the snowflakes from Snow Swirled in Poppy, Limeade and Gray. I stamped the greeting in Poppy Parade and punched it out with the Extra Large Oval punch. I matted that with some Poppy Parade punched with the Curly Label punch, which I cut in half. I popped that all up with Stampin' dimensionals. I punched out the Limeade snowflake with the Snowflake punch and added a Red Circle Fire Rhinestone brad to the center. Finally, some 5/8 inch Basic Gray Satin ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Snow Swirled
Papers: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade
Inks: Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade and Poppy Parade
Accessories: Extra Large Oval punch, Curly Label punch, Stampin' dimensionals, Snowflake punch, Circle Fire Rhinestone brad, 5/8 inch Basic Gray Satin ribbon
