  1. Very cool card! I love the layout. I like the shape of your snowflake, a nestability maybe? I like the snowflake paper too. I had a great deal of trouble finding snowflake paper... I guess it's just too early at the stores. But not for OWH! Great card Kathryn... :)

  9. Kathryn, This card is very nice and I think I have to say that I have never seen that SB die before. It is quite different, but my favorite elements are the two snowflakes. I love that both and I am a sucker for snowflakes. Thanks for sharing your card with us today.
