Simple Christmas Card

I wanted to keep my xmas cards simple this year, but is this too simple? I love the new Baja and thought the Snowburst set borrowed from my so damn talented friend Mel would go perfect with it. I also then remembered I had bought the Snowflake cuttlebug folder long ago and thought it would work well with the Baja Breeze.
I used a blender pen to colour in the snowmen's hats, scarves and added a bit to their bodies. I put icicle stickles then lily white flock ontop to make it look like snow beneath the snowmen. Sponged in a little baja over the whole image and coloured in the frame too. I put glaze pen over the hats and scarves to give them some dimension and then a little shimmer pen for some sparkle.
The other xmas card I made first last night that I felt had so much potential did not turn out how I would hope. I need to tweak it to make it work!
I actually got 3 cards made last night. I haven't been in the dungeon for a long time. I've got another baby card to get done too this week. I'm cheating with using big carriage stickers on them.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have found some time to get into your stamp room and unwind!

This is lovely! I don't think it's too simple. You're quite right that these two colours look great together.
My WW order sb here in 2 weeks or so, at which time we can do a swap again.

Not too simple at all. I love the colours (of course!) and the way you did the stamped snowflakes and embossed ones too. Those snowmen are ultra cute. Wicked sweet colouring dahlink' :O)
