Swirled Snowflakes

A couple weeks ago my friend Pam asked if I had the Snow Swirled stamp set.  She borrowed it and made a card similar to this.  I loved how she used red and green and gray together, so I used some elements of the card (the snowflake background, the greeting, and the diagonal ribbon) and changed up the rest a bit to create my own.  I changed the red to Cherry Cobbler, the olive to Garden Green and left the Basic Gray.  I also loved how she used ribbon on the card and just glued a piece diagonally--I did this with the Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon.  The verse also comes from the Snow Swirled stamp set and is punched with the wide oval punch and layered on the Decorative Label Punch.  I wanted it to stand out a little, so I added the blossom punch behind it.  I figured it has 6 sides like a snowflake, so why not?

This week's challenge on Hand Stamped Sentiments is to make a card with Snowflakes, so here it is.  Hope you enjoy!
