Red, white and blue Christmas

This card is loosely based on sketch 97 on Clean & simple:

On the Clean & Simple blog Natasha said: ' It essentially has 4 items on the card front.' As well as the English Paper Company background paper, I've added the snowman, tag, greeting and a snowflake, so I think I've entered into the spirit of the sketch.

There are a lot of challenges this week that ask for 'red, white and blue', understandly as it's 4 July tomorrow - sending best wishes to all blogging friends 'across the pond'.
