Sending Holiday Smiles

Hi, everyone!  I have another holiday card to share.  This is another one I found in my unfinished file from last December.  Everything was ready to go so it came together quickly.

The kitty is from Gecko Galz - Candy Cane Lane Collage Sheet, which I enlarged and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape.  The snowy background scene is from The Paper Shelter - Most Adorable Snowman set, which I layered on red glitter paper.  I stamped a sentiment (Simon Says Stamp Christmas Kitties) and then dry-embossed a teal panel with Darice Snowflake Background 5x7".  I adhered the square panel, added a white die-cut Celebrate banner (Die-Versions Express Banners Celebrate) and a number of snowflake sequins in white and teal.

Here's another view so you can see the sparkle:

I would like to support the following 8 challenges:
ABC Christmas Y is for Your Favourite Things (embossing folders, cute animals)
Dare 2B Artzy Holiday Fun 3/3
Double D Santa Hat 2/3
Gecko Galz December Once Upon a Christmas UE
Let's Squash It 3 Use any embossing folder and dies/fussy-cutting (I did all 3!) 2/3

Simon Says Stamp Monday Favourite Technique 4/5 (embossing folders - I use them on the majority of my cards. I never gave up on them, even when they weren't trendy)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Let it Snow 4/5
The Paper Shelter 10th Birthday Special Celebration 3/3

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
