Was at a loose end today (so what's new when the boss is away lol) so decided to do the card for my best mate. Cheated a bit and went through all the blog challenges and made the card to suit. Am well chuffed with how it came out - even if I do say so myself!

Large Snowflake - Cut with Cricut, glittered with Hobbycraft Irridescent Glitter
Small Snowflakes - Cut outs from PATP
Ribbon - Papermania Classic Christmas (stash)
