Something beginning with 'S'

It's time again for another card make
at the Christmas Card Club.
Hazel has challenged us to
Use something beginning with 'S'
Believe it or not the only thing I could think of was
'S' for silver so that  was my Starting (pun intended) point.
I pulled out a silver card blank  and then the rest just followed.
1. Silver card
2. Snowman
3. Silver glitter
4.  Silver Sequins
5. Sentiment
then when I really looked at the card I had made
I also found
6. Scarf
7. Two sequin stars
8. Snowflakes
and finally
9. Shaped edges

Still trying to use up my oddments of Kanban Toppers.
I found this snowman and matching sentiment.
Looking through  my freebie papers I found this one

10. Sea green colour by Alison Butler
(think I might be pushing the boat out on that one though!)

which matched the topper perfectly.
All the rest came from my stash.
I also had a small topper  to make a matching tag.

Entering into the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #141 Use up your snippets. (lots used here).
