Vintage Christmas in July

Our newest challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Christmas in July - and since it's our 400th challenge most of our team mates are offering a blog candy. So make sure you comment to win.
For my card I used a stamp from Stampendous called Snowy Postcard
It's very easy to make lovely cards with this stamp. I just sponged the stamped image with brown distress inks  and then added frantage shabby white embossing powder around the edges. For decoration I just layered several snowflake die cuts and added a vintage brad.

For my blog candy I'm offering this new Darice embossing folder for anyone who will comment on this post. Just tell me where are you from and if you celebrate Christmas.
