Christmas in September

It doesn't matter what time of year it is making a Christmas card always gives me more pleasure than any other themed card.I've used the layout from Card Patterns 'sketch 33' and from Allsorts challenge' Snowflakes in September'

I cut and folded the basic card then cut two triangles of snowflake paper (a magazine freebie) stitched them into place.The snowman and sentiment are a rub on which came from a large sheet of Christmas images bought from my local supermarket. I inked the edges of the card and punched some snowflakes in blue and silver .A silver ribbon to finish.
