Circut Cardz Challenge Entry

This is my first challenge entry for the Cricut Cardz Challenge.  The challenge was scallop shapes.  I took my inspiration from the beautiful creations at

George, Storybook, When It's Cold Outside
The scallops are from the Storybook cartridge.  I used five.  Three are welded for the base of the card which I cut three times, one is the tag to close the gate, and one is the vellum background for the snowflake.  The snowflake is cut from When It's Cold Outside.  I apologize that I'm still using the scanner for imaging.  The colors are off because the card stock is a really dark blue and the designer paper is foil.  The velum scallop has white dots.  The card is a standard A2 gate fold, but when you open it up it is about 13 inches wide.  So I had to cut off part of the left side for one of the inside scans.
When you open the first flap
Fully opened

The village scene was from me & my BIG ideas specialty cardstock book.  I bought it at Big Lots - most beautiful paper ever.  I used one sheet: cut the houses from the bottom of the page and the snowflake on the vellum and the background of the village is from the top of the page of paper.  The cardstock for the base is from DCWV textured neutrals.  The bling is my favorite - dazzles.  I think the only one that use more dazzles than I do is Paulette Jarvey at PaperWishes and that's because she has an unlimited supply!  Thanks Paulete :) 

Thanks for taking a peek.
