Here Comes Suzy Snowflake!

This card was made for one of the teachers at school to thank her for the wonderful craft items she got me for Christmas.  One of the items was a Spellbinders impressability.  I don't even think she knew what it was so I wanted to include that on the card.  The layout came from Woodware USA's sketch challenge this week.  All of the other elements were added with other challenges in mind right down to the snowflake as the center piece for the Creative Friday and Ladybug Craft Ink TLT challenge of making a card reflecting a song title...thus...Here Comes Suzy Snowflake!

I've entered this card in the following challenges...

Phindy's Place Challenge: Give Thanks with Scraps (the pink center & the snowflakes were scraps)

Here's a close up of the embossing.

Card makings:

Spellbinders: Impressability, snowflakes, fancy tag, ovals
Tim Holtz: embossing folder
Cuttlebug: Corner die
lace & ribbon
Stickles: Icicle
Ornament topper (behind brad)
Silver paint pen
