Let it Snow!!

letitsnow
Sunday greetings!!! This card seems very appropriate tonight.  As I prepare this post we are getting a gentle snowfall.  It’s so cozy here in the studio and I have enjoyed my first day of Christmas vacation (minus the time cleaning the house! lol).  Today’s card is for my Guest Designer stint at Stacey’s Curtain Call Colour Challenge this week :)  I just love these colours!!! I knew I wanted to do a big tag for this card, but the design of the tag changed a bit.  I thought I had some lovely snowflake ribbon with burgundy on it, but as it turned out it was red so I had to adlib.  Still loving my TCP’s snowflake die…I need to try some felt with it next!
