Less is More Sketch 2 Challenge

This is my first time with you other ladies and its nice to do simple cards.  I used plain white card stock from Walmart and the yellow and brown is also from Walmart.  I used the cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots and the snow flakes came from a cartridge(one of my Christmas cartridges not sure which, when i make cuts on the cricut i usually try to use the whole paper that way i have less  small paper pieces to store)  The sentiment is from MY CREATIVE TIME'S  Emma's  This and That Stamp Set.  I am entering this in the LESS IS MORE SKETCH 2 CHALLENGE  over at http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/ . Thanks so much Victoria.
