Here is what I created for this challenge:
Making winter/holiday cards will be so easy now
that you have Mary's new stamp set SNOW DAY!
I was so excited to recieve this set, I had to make
a card immediately.  I used 3 Birds on Parade to cut out this
little cute bird with her hat, scarf and boots.   Isn't she adorbs?
I placed some Stampin Up Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her hat
and boots and scarf.  I love glitter!
I tore two layers of white cardstock and lightly inked
with a light blue pad to make it look like snow. 
Then I used a Zig two way glue
pen and lightly touch the "snow" and added more glitter.
The top of the scene is a die cut and the finished
product is very delicate but gorgeous!  I again
used my Zig Glue pen and dusted it with Dazzling Diamond
glitter.  I'm not sure if you can see, but I used two layers of white
paper cut just a bit smaller to give it more
dimension.  The bird is popped up on a double thickness
of foam tape.
For the inside of the card, I again cut a white layer and used
a border punch on the bottom.  I used a blue/white dot ribbon
at the bottom of the white layer.  I used my Martha Stewart
snowflake punch and a Stampin Up snowflake punch to add some
dimension and interest on the inside.  I ran all three "flakes"
through my Zyron upside down so they would really
be sticky and then added the glitter.
I used two sentiments from the Snow Day stamp
set for the outside and inside of the
card.  I'm thrilled with how this turned out!

    My favorite holiday is Christmas because it's cozy. The colors can be bright and fun or warm and inviting. It's all about the family, but Christmas morning is just for my sister, my parents and me. We can take the morning through about noon and it's just the 4 of us before we have to go meet the rest of the family (who I love) of which there is 32 in total.
    Thanks for the chance to win!
