Very Merry Snowflakes PPA17 Sketch Challenge

This card was created for this week’s PPA sketch challenge by Margaret Moody, a talented pal known for her clean layouts and stunning design.  I wanted to use my sister’s new stamp set Snow Swirled.  I love this stamp set.  I used the snowflake stamp and some scraps leftover from my Holiday Card Event.  Red and green are the traditional colors for Christmas so I decided to do my take on this card with the snowflake background and a strip of textured paper done with the Petals-A-Plenty Stampin’ Up! Textured Impressions Folder for the Big Shot. I like the way my card turned out.  Let me know what you think.
