Simple, Easy 5 in 1

Hello everyone,
.
I decided to go with a simple, easy, and quick card today. I finally got rid of my migraines (they were due to allergies) and ended up with a massive head cold. 'Tis the season right? LOL It was a little difficult to take a pic. seeing the metallic silver kept wanting to shine the flash, but I managed to get a decent one. Sorry for the bright flash in the corner.
.
I found the challenges to give me inspiration in making my card today via The Daily Dare.
.
My first challenge is for today's Daring Cardmakers 'I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas Challenge where we were to make a Christmas cards that is mainly white with just a hint of coloring on your embellishments or stamped image. My hint of coloring, of course, is silver. I have never really made a mainly white, simple and easy card before. This was pretty cool!! LOL
.
Next, this is for today's No Time To Stamp's Stamp Simply #115-Mass Production Challenge where we were to create a card that is SUPER easy to mass produce — like once designed you could realistically sit down and do 6 or 8 or more within an hours time. This card only took me 15 minutes to make and will be easy to produce many quickly.
.
This is for today's Paper Cutz Challenge #19 where anything goes, and for today's Paper Makeup Stamps Challenge where we were to create anything holiday/Christmas.
.
And finally, my layout is yesterday's Our Creative Corner Challenge which is the Stamp and Smiles Sketch Challenge #42
.
My card is quite simply made. I finally used my Winter House Cuttlebug folder I have had for over a year, but never managed to use. I sprinkled to snow with Dazzling Diamonds, and embossed the saying from SU!'s Solemn Stillness set in Silver EP. My ornaments are just circle punches with Cuttlebug Snowflake Diecuts covered in Dazzling Diamonds centered with a rhinestone, and holiday silver wired ribbon. That's it!! Simple huh?
.
What do y'all think?
