Snowflake Soiree Stamped Background Christmas Card

Created this Snowflake stamped background Christmas Card using all Stampin' Up products. 

I'm typically not a pink person but thought the pink & gray combo was a nice combination. Would like to know what you think?

For stamped background I stamped 2 different Snowflake Soiree snowflakes several times on white cardstock using Basic Gray & Pink Pirouette inks. Put adhesive paper over the stamped snowflakes. The adhesive paper is double-sided sticky. You peel off one side and place it down and then peel off the other side. Used Dazzling Diamonds on the adhesive for sparkle. Added Organza Ribbon & Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. Added 1 3/8" Circle Punch of Gray. Added stamped 1 1/4" Scallop Punch. Added Deligthful Decorations "Merry Christmas" sentiment punched with 3/4" Circle Punch.
Base of card is white, 1st layer is pink & 2nd layer is the white with stamped Snowflake background that has the adhesive & Dazzling Diamonds on it.

adhesive: multipurpose adhesive sheet
gliter: Dazzling Diamonds
ink - Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette
paper: cardstock - gray, pink, white
punches: 3/4" circle, 1 1/4" scallop, 1 3/8" circle
