Simon Says Stamp Holiday Challenge

Simon Says Stamp is having a joint challenge and blog hop with both its blogs; the challenge is Holiday Fun, to make something for any of the upcoming holidays.  The winner will receive a $100 shopping spree!  Here is my card:
I just received a new Hero Arts clear Christmas set with this sentiment included, and it seemed perfect to pair with this older birdhouse stamp and the pine bough from last year.  I clear embossed the pine bough and the sentiment, and white-embossed the snowflakes, then added a little glitter here and there using a glue pen.  The birdhouse was paper pieced, as was the bird.  And I added some metallic red gems to the holly. 

Supplies:  red, white and blue cardstock, versafine onyx black, Colorbox Evergreen, and Adirondack Cranberry inks, clear and white embossing powders, Hero Arts K5242 Pine Bough, CL251 SparkleClear Birdhouse Tag, CL464 Sending Holiday Cheer, colored pencils, glitter, glue pen
