Xmas card club challenge card

Well ladies here is my offering for the challenge I set. The challenge was no printed papers, you could make your own from stamping !!! I find the papers are the first thing I reach for these days and its just not so easy to not use them !!!
The image is a LOTV one I glittered up and the snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch (My lovely auntie lent it to me !!! YES she got it back !!!) with a gem added to the centre for some pazzaz !
Simple card but I think it works ................

I am entering this square card above into the following challenge:
Winter Wonderland - Christmas buffet. Ribbon, Snowflakes and gems are all on this card !!
Bling it on - Anything goes
Our creative corner - Christmas in July
Kort o Mania - Anything goes
Allsorts - Free and Easy
Just for fun - anything goes

Well I just got the buzz for getting some cards under my belt so I made some more of a previous design I have listed on my blog but these too don't use printed papers so I thought I would share !!! I tried different colours for different effects !
