Warm Wishes

While browsing around I saw the first challenge of the year over at the Cards Blog. I LOVE everything snow (except for shoveling it), and couldn't resist taking part. Even if my card wasn't picked as a top 10, I'm still fond of it, and want to share it!

I know these are not your traditional colors for a snow themed card, but I love them! There's nothing wrong with being a little different is there?

The "snowflakes" were cut with my Home Accents cartridge on my Cricut. They were actually labeled as flowers, but I think they make nice snow flakes. I ran them through my Xyron and applied a hefty dose of Martha Stewart Crystal flakes. I layered them and ran embroidery thread through buttons to hold them all together. I glued all my layers down, and did a little piercing around the top paper to give it a tiny something. I inked the edges of the lower paper, applied ribbon, and stamped my sentiment.

My only regret? That I didn't make more than one of them!
