Flakey Friends...

I want to give a shout out to Lesley at Dynamic Duos for the AWESOME color duo this week!  I would have never paired black, blue and snowmen together.  I love this card!  I had so much fun making it!  There are so many great cards by the DT and entered in the challenge.  You must check it out!

I paired the color duo with this week's sketch challenge at Mojo Monday.  While the sketch was out of my norm....again I love the end result!

I wanted to break up the circles and soften my card, so I added a layered bow, topped off with a little bling button!

I added Diamond Stickles to my snow and snowflakes for a little more bling!

I kept the inside clean.  I stayed with the black, blue and white layers.  I punched out a snowflake in the corner to a little something to the inside of my card.  I am sure my sentiment was no surprise to my regular followers.  I think it has earned a permanent place on my desk!
