red and white christmas card

hi for this card my husband set me a challenge to use as many different techniques and craft 'things' as possible.i started using a percy and penelope stamp, and coloured it with promarkers. i coloured the snowed with a blue embossing pen. and used a new embossing powder, that puffs slightly when heated, it also has glitter in it. i then layered onto red card and used the same red card to back the 2 white embossed cards. they are embossed using a snowflake and then swiss dots. i then punched 3 snowflakes out of the same red card and placed a gem in the middle of each of them. i coloured a greeting peel off red, and then added some snowflakes to the main image using clear ink and the same embossing powder mentioned earlier. to finish the card is used crafters companion's spray and shine.

i'd like to enter it into the following challenges
