Christmas Snowflake


I just had to make one more card using this fabulous sketch.  This time I decided to make a Christmas card as the heart was screaming snowflake.  Sorry...same song (aka: sketch), third verse (aka: card)!   Have you figured out I love this sketch yet LOL!

Christmas always brings out this wonderful Cuttlebug snowflake die and this beaded, silver cording I got at Mike's a few years back.   I love snowflakes so it is the predominant theme on this card.  Things looked a bit too "blue" (I'm not a huge blue fan...) so I added the silver bell for a bit of pizazz and Christmas cheer. This qualifies for the Friday Mashup snowflake theme.

Hmmm.....what else can I use instead of a heart...just kidding!  Before you say it, yes, a flower is a definite option that is still brewing as is a shamrock (may have given you a hint about your birthday card, Moe!).  So many options....so many blog readers getting sick of the sketch....better stop while I'm ahead. 

Now that I have delved into Christmas, time to get back to my beloved leaves as Fall isn't over yet....snort...!! 

Have a great day!!

You have to love when you get so much beauty & enjoyment out of a sketch....and this turned out just perfect! Gorgeous work on the card, Marisa =) I love when you're inspired....gorgeousness abounds! The snowflake is spectacular and the bell is super precious tied to the the button with that awesome silver twine!
