Freshly Made Sketches #65

In real life I love pristine white snowflakes..... in cardmaking... brown comes in a close second to purple!  I kept my card CAS with a touch of bling for the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
 My layered snowflake was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The snowflake is a combination of stamped images from the coordinating Snowflakes stamp set and Cricut cuts.  I carried the snowflake theme over into the inside as well.
