"Merry Christmas" Snowflake Card

Today I'm showcasing the last of the snowflake themed Christmas cards I made. 
This card used the same techniques as the previous cards,
so I'll just do a brief description...
Base of the card (5.5" x 8.5") is again white cardstock that was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white EP.  Then I pressed Broken China Distress Ink onto the paper, sprayed with pearlized water and buffed off the stamped images with a dry cloth.
 Down the center of the card I glued a piece of silver ribbon.  I then cut two other pieces of white cardstock.  On one (3" x 4") I did the same technique as the base but used Tumbled Glass DI.  Once it was dry I punched small snowflakes from foil tape and added them to the top of the trees.  On the center tree I added a clear gem and on the other trees (and on various snowflakes) I added White Opal Perfect Pearls.  I used the other piece of cardstock (3.25" x 4.25") as a mat.  These were adhered together and then over the ribbon.  I cut another piece of ribbon, tied it into a bow and glued under the matted portion.  Finally I cut two oval pieces of cardstock using my Coluzzle.  The top piece is a coordinating color of cardstock.  To that I added the silver foil "Merry Christmas" sticker.  The bottom mat piece is white cardstock.  These were adhered together and then to the card.
