How to: Run in the snow

I've printed some vintage X-mas collages from Magic Moonlight Free Images blog so I was determined to stay in a vintage mood. I made 3 cards up till now, and it's definitely TOO SLOW!
One of them is this one:
I really like the blue-kraft-white color combo. This is an X-mas card & the sentiment is hidden on a tag. It says 'Merry Christmas'.
The kids on the image are running in the snow and I can bet, it's the first snow this winter! Just look at their faces!
I was testing my new arrived die cuts and I'm really glad I bought them. The picket fence is from Cottage Cuts, as well as the tree & the birds.
The text is a page from a Polish book from 1972. Here I used another new die, from Nellie's Choice this time. And in the corner it's a wonderful die from Memory Box. I keep on testing different dies with my Big Shot machine and I'm sorry that the worst up till now are those from Marianne's Design... The ribbon is from a second hand store and it's a piece of a scarf.
We already had our first snow here a few weeks ago. And how about you?
The card is for the following challenges:
