3 in 1 challenge card

I got some gorgeous Basic Grey papers today from Martine and couldn't wait to use them for the Basic Grey challenge.The requirements are the use of Basic Grey paper and embossing so I've used my Swiss Dots folder in the Cuttlebug for the oval background as it always reminds me of snow and suits a Christmas card.I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
It fits in with the Allsorts challenge where they want "snowflakes in September".
I have used "Andrea" and "Jonny" from my own stamp range A Passion for Stamps which you can see in the sidebar and coloured them with Promarkers.This time I've added leggings and a couple of bracelets along with a scarf to the Andrea stamp for a change..
