Card Challenge - Mojo Monday 321

Merry first Advent to you all :) Just finished a Christmas card for one of my coworkers. He asked me to create one with a bicycle, so I guess he's going to give away a bike ^^ For the layout of the card I used the Mojo Monday Sketch 321. It's so adorable! I used a snowy theme and different shades of light blue, white and silver. Here's my take on their sketch:

The blue background paper is from Papermania (Vintage Notes Collection and Mistletoe Kisses). You can't see it too good, but there are some very light snowflakes on the paper :) I inked all the edges with "Broken China" Distress Ink. I did the border with one of my Martha Steward punchers, using it on both sides of the paper strip. After that I applied some InkaGold in silver, to make it shine. I did also some heat-embossing with silver powder. On the outer circle I used two different shades of liquid pearls (platinum and white opal). The two little banners and the bicycle are cut out with cutting dies. In this case, I wrote the sentiment by hand. 

In the detail-picture you can see the perfect pearls on the white circles. I just stamped some tiny snowflakes with embossing ink, and brushed some perfect pearls in interference blue on it. At the end, I used some "true snow" from Aleene's to top the bicycle with it :)  

And that's their sketch:

As you can see, I decided to take the Square Sketch :)
Besides, I added this card in the Christmas theme challenge from Scrapping everyday miracles, too :) 

Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful 1. Advent!
