Happy January! I hope your New Year is off to a GREAT start!!

Here is a card I whipped up... using my Winter Woodland Cricut Cart (big snowflake behind image), and of course my favorite from Accent Essentials for the center snowflake! Got that CUTE snowman just the other day from MelJen designs!! (ok so that is new.. but everything else I had!) that blue bling is probably 5 years old! YEAH! using it! HA HA! :)

The Card-Close-Up of all the SPARKLY snowflakes!!
