Snow Swirled

This is one of my favorite stamps to use at Christmas.  This is Stamping Up's Snow Swirled set. I thought it would be perfect to use for my DT card for the new challenge at Twisted Tuesday.  The challenge is to: Stamp Your Image and/or Sentiment on Patterned Paper.  The TWIST: Add the Color Teal or Turquoise Somewhere on Your Project.
I stamped the tree in Versa Mark on my patterned paper and then used a fine gold embossing powder to emboss it.  I cut it out with the Spellbinder Oval die cut and layered it on SU Island Indigo cardstock cut out with the Scallop Oval die cut.  I then used turquoise gems from my stash on it.  Here is close up of the tree.

The cardstock on the card is SU and the patterned paper is Bo-Bunny.  I also used SU Very Vanilla CS to emboss with SU Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  The ribbon is also from SU.  I used Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia for my flower.  I used the Very Vanilla CS and sprayed the flower with Imagine Crafts Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Then I used another Gem for the flower center.  The sentiment is also from the Snow Swirled set and stamped in Versa Mark, then heat embossed with the fine gold embossing powder.   It is punched out with SU Scallop Oval punch.  I then sponged SU Island Indigo ink around the edges.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
