Two hour and ten minute craft dash

Hello everyone,

The new 10 minute craft dash challenge started today and I was very excited to get creating.  So, I gathered my supplies, pulled out the sketch from the Scrapbooker's Paradise challenge and set my timer.  A couple of hours later, I finally finished my card.  Things were just not working for this one, so I'm just happy that it finally pulled together (I almost tossed it at one point) and another Christmas card is complete!  Hooray for that!!

I stamped the Inkadinkado snowman with embossing ink and embossed it with Lindy's Stamp gang two toned embossing powder in Desert Moon Turquoise, so irl it has a really nice shimmer to it.  The papers are from the s-e-i chick-a-doo line, the sparkly glittery buttons are from American Crafts and the sentiment is from the same stamp set as the snowman.  I outlined the circle in stardust Stickles (which are still wet) for extra sparkle.  Ribbon and silver cord are from my stash.

This card is for the following challenges:

Scrapbooker's Paradise Playing in Paradise, which has a wonderful sketch.  I turned it on its side and moved the buttons.
