Christmas Warmth

Good morning, everyone!  It's Friday once again and that means time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week's challenge is to add some Christmas warmth to your project with either fabric or felt.  Our sponsor is:
Limited Runs Digital Stamps
And the prize is 3 images of the winner's choosing!!
And here is my card:
I chose to use felt on this one.  The red layer behind my image is felt and my two snowflakes are also made out of felt.
 I cut out the two smaller birdhouses and popped them up on some foam dots.  You can see that in the picture above and a little bit better in the photo below.  I also used some glitter pen on the snow to get some more sparkle.
