MaryJo's Lunchtime Challenge #47

Are you running in 10 different directions like I am?!! Guess that's why my mojo seems to have disappeared!! I've been sick the past week and in bed all day Friday and trying to slowly catch up ever since.....have that yukky cold that seems to be going around. BUT, I simply do not have time to be sick!

So, for this challenge, I kind of copied a card I saw in the PaperCrafts Nov/Dec issue, Page 25. It's actually a page I had earmarked because I loved the snowflake card, but when MJ issued this week's challenge, I KNEW that was the card to make!!

So, here's my version.......
Instead of the traditional blue snowflake card, I used Real Red and Old Olive (LOVE that combo for Christmas!) and added those fabulous Felt Flurries with Crystal Brads in the center. 'Course, I didn't add the little accessories down at the bottom because this card was way too busy already, although I really am pleased with the finished effect!
Thanks for stopping by.
Stamps: Snowflake Spot, Punch Pals (small snowflakes)
Inks: Real Red, Old Olive
CS: Whisper White, Real Red, Old Olive
Misc: Photo Corner Punch, Real Red DSP (Hostess, Level 1), Snow Flurries (small; from Mini), Green Crystal Brads (Ice Collection, Wide Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
Hope you'll take some time to stop by and visit Mary Jo's Blog....it's terrific, AND you can see who else has participated in this week's sketch!

So pretty. I am so mad I didn't get any of those snowflakes, they are just beautiful. Great card. And yes, we are all crazy now! I am on a mission to enjoy the PEACE of Christmas this year, not the stress. It is so hard not to get caught up in the whole hustle and bustle!
