A more restrained challenge!

Hello again,
Definitely the last post for tonight.
After my mammoth 8 challenge card yesterday, I thought I should be a little more restrained today.  Although Nina at There's Magic In The Air has suggested that perhaps next week I could get 10 challenges in!!!  Well, Nina we will have to see!
Anyway, this card meets just three challenges this time and without further ado here is the first.  The sketch I followed was at Crazy 4 Challenges and is shown below:

Cindy does love her sketches!!

This is the card I made following this sketch:

The other challenges I am submitting this for are:
Simon Says - A recipe - three embellishments, two papers and 1 image.
Allsorts - Snowflakes in September.
Now strictly speaking I have only used two papers to qualify for the challenge at Simon Says and they are the two around the image because the snowflakes in the background are actually a piece of material so not actually paper (Hope that counts you guys!).  It is blue in colour and the snowflakes are silver glitter but it doesn't really show up in this photo :(
The image is a wood mounted rubber stamp from Anita's, the O Holy Night ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, and the snowflakes at the bottom are from my craft stash.
Hope you like it.
