Merry Christmas Snowflake Card

Hello!  I am posting this card today (which is actually kind of tomorrow already) because I am going to be going to Monterey for the next couple of days....  I am so excited to get out of this heat!  Woo hoo!  As always, I will look forward to coming back on Sunday and seeing what you have created over the weekend!  :)  This card is making me really get into the holiday spirit!  I think it turned out looking kind of country...  I had the song "Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays" by N'Sync playing in my head the entire time I was making this!  Very nerdy, I know...  :)

Celebrate the Occasion- make a shaped Christmas card
Bitten by the Bug 2- use the mittens from Joys of the Season cartridge
Scrapbookaholic by Abby- use some bling (I think Stickles are bling)





Cricut cartridges used:
Winter Woodland- card cut at 4.41", snowflake cut at 5.59"
Joys of the Season- mittens cut at 1.47"
Storybook- frame cut at 1.55" for white piece, 1.94" for green piece
Cuttlebug- swiss dots, snowflakes
Sentiment- Stampabilities
Stickles- star dust

Okay, there it is!  Hope you enjoy, and I'll see you in a couple of days!
