SOS115 - Snowy Christmas Card with old hardware

And it's Tuesday and we at Shopping Our Stash have a  new challenge. This week we ask you to use your oldest hardware! By "hardware" we mean things like ribbon slides, brads, eyelets, metal frames, etc.

on my card I  used several old hardware pieces - metal frame around the sentiment (I think SU used to carry these couple years back - in vanilla - I painted it with an old silver marker), little brads that hold the frame (these are from SU too) and the star brad in the sky (just an odd piece from the bottom of my brad box).
I stamped the background with snowflake stamp from SU, embossed them with detailed white. The country church is a die cut from memory box and the embossing folder is from Spellbinders.

I'm entering it into these challenges:
Just Add Ink - add snowflakes
C.R.A.F.T. challenge - Christmas
Speedy Fox and Friends - House
Totally Gorjuss - die cuts and punches
Crimbo Crackers - it's snow business
Crafty Boots - Christmas in August
