25 Days of Christmas - Simple Snowflake

Since it is snowing outside I thought a nice wintery card would be appropriate for Day 4 of my 25 Days of Christmas.  Here is what I made:

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used white card stock for the base.  I cut a shimmery blue mat at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  The white strips are 1 5/8"x4."  I embossed them with a Cuttlebug embossing folder by Anna Griffin called "Paper Snowflakes."  I wrapped the card with a ribbon that I got at JoAnn Fabrics last year.  The snowflake cut is from the Silhouette Store.  It is called "snowflake" and is by Sweet Elsie (#51692).  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

For the inside of the card I cut some shimmery blue paper at 4 1/2"x3 1/4."  I then cut some white card stock at 4 1/4"x3."  I used stamps from My Craft Spot for the sentiment and the snowflakes.  They both came from the "White Christmas" set.

I made this card for the following challenges:
