Snowy Christmas

Welcome to your weekend!
Today I have a very simple Christmas card to show you

Snowflake embossed piece is adhered to SU Island Indigo cardstock 
and that is attached to the base with foam squares.

Martha Stewart punches - Snowflakes & branches
Clear rhinestones, some little flowers for snowflakes, and a red button for a Holly Berry.

The sentiment is matted to Tempting Turquoise and adhered to the snowflake
layer with foam squares for dimension.
