Weekend challenges - what fun!

I've really been enjoying playing with the online challenges this past week, and here is a card where I managed to use three of them at once :-)
First of all, I used the sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner that they posted on Saturday--It's such a simple sketch, but how to make it unique or special was what really challenged me.

Then I remembered the challenge my online friend Christyne had set, on her website Handstamped from the Heart, to use something new you've been saving for that special time, and also to use those goodies that you usually think are too precious to use.  And I just happened to have some Tsukineko Platinum Shimmer Paint in my cupboard that was still in the plastic packaging.  In the spirit of this, I also dug out my precious velum paper, which I never use since I always "save it" for a special occasion.

Finally, I decided to follow a snowflake theme for the snowflake challenge at KL Stampin, and made my snowflakes using ideas from their tutorial.

What do you think?
