Christmas in July

I kind of like Christmas in July challenges.  You can enjoy crafting without the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and you can think cool thoughts while the air conditioner cranks its heart out.
So, here's a Christmas card, featuring my interpretation of the current sketch from Sketch Saturday.
The sentiment (from Whimsey) is silver-embossed. The largest snowflake is from Purple Onion, stamped in cobalt blue. The medium snowflake is stamped in SU Bliss Blue and the smallest is in Colorbox ice blue.
This card is for these challenges:
Sketch Saturday #420
Catch the Bug Christmas in July Day 1 -- snowflake theme
52 Christmas Card Showdown -- color challenge -- blues/white/silver
Word Art Wednesday #238 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra -- anything Christmas.
