Snowflakes that fall on your nose

Good morning, good morning, good morning! I am in such a great mood, as some of you may know Stampin' Up! had their first ever European convention last weekend and many of my blogging friends went to the gig in Germany. A fabulous time was had by all and many of them were honoured with prestigious awards which has made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside for them. So , a huge congratulations to you all and I will definitely see you in LONDON next year :D

Anyhoo for my card today I have used (wait for it) snow flurries set from Stampin' Up! I know you think that's a bit weird but it's not lol!, I love making my own backgrounds with stamps and also wanted to use this colour combination which I think has worked out quite well.

Well have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Stamps: Snow flurries.
Ink: Old olive.
