Snowy Postcard Stamp!!!!

I've been wanting this stamp for AGES ever since I started seeing what the creative Coops can do with it! Stampendous really should be paying her commission as so many people must have bought this after seeing her fab work with it!

I only hope I've managed to do it justice with this card, the first I've made with it as it only arrived today!
I can't believe it's only a week till Christmas and I'm STILL making Christmas cards!
 I stamped onto cream card using Frayed Burlap distress ink and edged the whole panel with gilding flakes.

The poinsettias are Marianne dies, the floral sprigs are Memory Box and the sentiment is LOTV.
Papers are papermania which I've distressed around the edges, and I've added lots of stardust stickles to the snowy roofs which hasnt been picked up very well on my pics! I should have waited to photograph this in daylight but I couldnt wait to blog it :)
Card candy is craftwork cards.
