Stampin' B's Snowflake Challenge

Welcome to Thursday!! Time for another Stampin' B's DT challenge. This week Joanne is our hostess, and her challenge to us is Snowflakes, Snowflakes, Snowflakes. Done and DONE!!
So my dusky evergreen scene is framed in snowflakes and matted on some shimmery, silvery snowflake DP from Pink Paislee. And I was SO thrilled to be able to add this luscious lilac baker's twine from The Twinery that I won in the Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge a few weeks ago. Plus, I used my brand-new Martha Stewart Nordic snowflake punch and SU jewelry tag punch for the first times (along with my new SU Tiny Tags stamp set, as well). It's so much fun to play with new toys! :)

I was able to incorporate a few other challenges into this 5" x 5" card:
I hope you've been inspired to play along with the Stampin' B's!! If you do make a card, post it on your blog or SCS gallery, and link it up to the Inlinkz tool on the Stampin' B's blog. We'd love to see what you create!! :)

Thanks so much for checking out my creation for today!
