A Very Merry Christmas: MOJO Monday #264

A Snowflake, Christmas greetings and MOJO Monday Challenge # 264 = a great way to start off the Holiday Season. With a North Eastern Storm to boot, I might be stuck home for a few days to craft out the storm.
 I have just started taken part in the challenges over at MOJO Monday blog, and I am really enjoying the challenge sketches and inspiration from all the entries. Most of this card was created with pieces and parts of leftovers, a little snip here and some inking to create this little beauty...
 Here is the side view of the snowflake...everything on this card is made with Close To My Heart products which you can purchase on my website except for the vintage mother of pearl button that adorns the center of the snowflake and a little glimmer mist.
