Dressed Up Snowflake ~ FMS66 & FM90

Well, I hope everyone has had a wonderful christmas!  I've had a nice little break from stamping and am ready to get back into creating again!  I have to say that by the time christmas arrived last year I was so sick of making christmas cards.  This year I could have gone on for a long time....I had so many ideas and not enough time.  Thank goodness for Merry Monday challenges so I can make christmas cards all year long! 
This card was a happy accident.  I needed to clean off my desk after all that christmas stamping and there were a few things laying there that just happened to coordinate.  These were all leftovers from many other projects. 
This is what I found.  When I pulled them together, I thought it would make a striking card, so off to work I went.  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketchs 66 and the snowflake theme from The Friday Mashup 90.  I opted to not use the colors from FM90, obviously.
I actually went down to my desk to make a completely different project, but I got so excited about this one, I had to do it first.  After I finished I worked on my original card, but it turned out to be a dud, in my opinion.  I'm glad this one turned out though!
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: none
Paper: Black, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Mocha Morning DP
Ink: Crumb Cake (sponging)
Accessories: Designer Frames EF, Antique Brad, Oval Cutter, Extra Large Oval Punch, Northern Frost Decorative Strip die, Northern Flurry EF, Black Satin Ribbon
Thanks for taking a peek!
