SUO challenge

I really enjoy checking out the SUO challenges page every week or so.  This time the challenge is a clean and simple holiday card.  That is exactly what i need to make this year.  This one is so simple it is my first one layer wonder in a LONG time.  What can I say I love my some ribbon and layers and bling and buttons.
I have admired the crumb cake color for a while and knew that would be my base.  I struggled for a while to get the balance right on the card but now I am super happy with it.  It is clean and classy.  The stamp set is Snow Swirled for the panel and then Dasher of course is dashing in gold embossing powder.   The ink colors are early espresso, choc chip and crumb cake.  Then the edges are sponged in crumb cake.
I used my stampin up grid paper to make the mask.  I highlighted some of the flakes with the white uniball pen.

I hope you enjoy this card and join in on a SUO challenge sometime soon.
