Christmas card in August

Today, I am playing with a technique demonstrated by Laura Bassen in the latest Online Card Class - taking pieces of a die cut - but I didn't use it as a background, but as a focal point! (and yes, it is a Christmas card, and no, I'm not crazy - well, not much!) The die is a background die - I just took some of the pieces and arranged them to form a snowflake. I really wish I had some of that magic Press and Seal stuff Laura used - would have made this a MUCH quicker card!

 Seeing as I made the snowflake from scraps out of a diecut, and I added little gems, I will be sharing this card over at Virginia's View Challenge.

I'll also be sharing this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - this week, it is Anything Goes.  
Thanks for visiting!
