No Christmas stamps or backing papers

Entering this card into Winter Wonderlands Challenge over here
The challenge was to make a card without using a Christmas stamp or backing papers .
I have cut the snow flakes and embossed the cards with the Cuttle Bug
Mounted them all onto Silver Mirri board then blue card stock all from my stash
Blue ribbon and merry Christmas tag added .
Made a nice change from stamping
