ATSM - Holiday

Good morning.
This is my first post for the Design Team at ASTM  so I'm quite nervous. The theme this week is 


and we are sponsored by

who are offering a prize of 3 digis.

Here is my card for the DT.

This uses a Cuttlebug cut and emboss snowflake die and a couple of snowflake punches, as well as debossing using a Spellbinders Fleur de Lys square to create the frame for the central panel. The snowflakes were mounted on a square of sparkly card and finished off with a rhinestone in the center. Quite a simple card really.
Pop over to the main site to see what the rest of the team have come up with for your inspiration.

I shall enter the following challenges -
Christmas all Year Around - Not traditional colours
Simply Create Too - Christmas in July
