Snowflakes and Baubles

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a Christmas card that I made today. I recently won one of the ODBD SLC's and I got my stamps this week.  Those of you following me on Instagram would have seen the pic of the cardinal that I colored immediately (as soon as the mail arrived, I opened the package and inked the stamp!!! seriously!!). I've used the other stamp set, a set of snowflakes in this card and this is inspired by their current challenge too.

Here's my card.

I sponged a piece of white cardstock with DI Tumbled glass. There are 3 different snowflakes in the ODBD Snowflake Mini set. I used Hero Arts Shadow ink - Silver for one of the snowflake with flourishes. I embossed the other 2 snowflakes - one with clear embossing powder and the other with white. I tried to stamp with white chalk ink, but it was not visible as the background was light.

The baubles are from Joanna Sheen Make A Wish stamp set. I embossed them with silver embossing powder and colored them with my markers and fuzzy cut them. I used silver thread to hang them.

The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy stamps Christmas Penguins set. I heat embossed it with Zing silver embossing powder. I layered it with a panel on which I used my border punch to create a fancy look. I added a few rhinestones from my stash.

What do you think of this card? Your comments are appreciated!
I used baby powder before embossing. That worked good for reducing the static. 
The weather here is getting colder and that means shorter days, which implies less time for taking better photos. How do take your photos?
Thanks for stopping by.

This is one of the cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive.
