Be of Good Cheer Snowflake

Okay we have enough snow now!  I'm typing this as I watch huge flakes fall.  A very christmassy scene outside plenty for sledging and making snowmen but I think I'd rather stay inside!!

So it doesn't seem strange at all to still be making Christmas cards.  This is for the Merry Monday challenge which gives us a sketch to follow. 

I've used a Very Vanilla card base and some Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper as a background.  I then made a banner and stamped with a Sentiment from Curly Cute in Gumball Green.  I added a Basic Pearl at one end as the circle in the sketch.  For my focal point I punched a 2 1/2" circle of Very Vanilla.  Then die cut a snowflake using Snow Flurry Bigz die out of Red Glimmer Card.  The third layer was added with a Dimensional and a Large Pearl added to the top. 

I love how the snowflake has transformed the circle into a floral shape.  This die is from the Autumn/Winter catalogue which is due to finish at the end of this month.  Don't let it run out before getting your favourites. 

Here's a little tag I made with the leftovers.

Well the children have arrived home from school through the wintry snowscape so best be off to make some much needed hot chocolates for a heat up.
