Bugaboo Stamps 11th Birthday Bash - Day 4

Hi, everyone!  Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating their 11th birthday!  Yay!  Congratulations, Jodie!  They are holding their annual birthday bash with a theme of forest friends, and I could not resist joining in.  I'm nearly late for the party but I made a couple of cards to help celebrate!

My first card was inspired by Day 4, which is a bingo challenge (see bingo board below).  I used a precoloured image from Bugaboo Stamps called Chimney Reindeer Peeker, which I fussy-cut and popped up with foam tape.  

For the background, I embossed green cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder and then sanded it to reveal the white core so the snowflakes would stand out.  I adhered a snowflake-embossed white piece that I hand-cut as a snowy rooftop and a sparkly green scalloped rectangle frame.  To finish the card, I adhered a fussy-cut sentiment, a die-cut poinsettia, and a number of snowflake sequins.

Below is the Day 4 bingo board for the challenge at Bugaboo Stamps Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.  I went with the middle column:  sparkle, Bugaboo image, and flower.

Here's another look at my card to show all the sparkle:

I was also inspired by the following challenges:
