Make It Monday #39: Multi-stamp Background Building Card 3

I am still thinking along the lines of Christmas cards...I figure if I am entering contests then I should add to my stack of Christmas cards that I will need anyway!  For this card I pulled out Places, Please and used the tree (ripe avocado)...then I pulled out Tag It's #8 and used the (darling) snowman (black ink) and the little swish of snowflakes (aqua mist).  The sentiment is from the Tremendous Treats:  Holiday which I embossed with white embossing powder...I added a little "snowball" bling to the end of the sentiment.  This background paper really does remind me of some cute gift wrap paper...all the stamped elements are small...easy to use and design around...
