F for Family

I have made only a few Christmas cards so far this year,  I'm behind compared to last year, and the number I'll need is increasing for each year.
Most of the cards will be posted so I need them to be postage friendly ones. This is such a card. I covered the front base with a DP with pink and grey trees. I think I'll make more of these cards with slight variations.
Here I used 1 stamp for the sentiment in Norwegian (which translates to something like: it is in the children's sparkling  eyes one finds the great Christmas joy). 
The snowflakes, snow hills and children are all die cut. The children reminds me of my 3 youngest nephews, Noah, Liam and Levi.

This card is for
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge - #1 Anything Christmas Goes
The Paper Players - #334 Cut It Out!
ABC Christmas Challenge - "F" for family
