  1. Your snowflake card is gorgeous Becca, despite the lack of adhesive on the flakes :) The joys of older stash.

    1. Thanks, dear! I didn't quite bash my stash of those snowflakes though. I have enough to do at least 1 more card like this one!!!

  2. Gorgeous cards. I love the colour combo, it's not the traditional one for these kinds of cards and that makes them more original. Hugs, María.

  3. your card is wonderful. Thank you very much for showing it at Paperminutes.
