Just a few flake

Here's another Christmas card, using a blue color scheme.
The centerpiece is two snowflakes, one cut from snippets of vellum, the other white cardstock, layered on a dark blue square.  (The die is a little Sizzix one I picked up at the craft consignment sale, and truth is it's seen better days.) Behind that are four squares of my favorite snowflake paper (also snippets, I'm down to just a little of that pattern).

The sketch here is from Catch the Bug; I finished the card with some snowflake ribbon and a sentiment in Night of Navy.

I'm playing in these challenges:

Clear it Out -- blues and ribbon
Crafty Ribbon -- monochromatic Christmas
C.R.A.F.T #288 -- Christmas
Catch the Bug -- Holiday Chaos sketch
Die Cut Divas -- Snow/Christmas
Simon Says Wednesday -- Christmas
Pixie's Snippet Playground #154 -- use snippets
