Inspiration Day 2 - Snowflake Wreath

Welcome to another Inspiration Day!
Today I took my inspiration from this snowflake I bought at the end of last winter when all the Christmas merchandise was on sale. My actual plans for it is to adhere photos of my son and send it off to my parents for an early Christmas present. But in the meantime, it hangs in my craft space and is my inspiration for today's card.
So I started out my wreath card by stamping the snowflakes with Buckaroo Blue ink onto Buckaroo Blue cardstock (this is one of my favorite blues ... too bad I didn't buy extra paper and ink before it retired). Then, I added more snowflakes with white embossing powder. A hook and small sentiment were embossed with silver and then I used my new silver Sharpie pen to put some silver around to edge of the focal point. This designer paper I've had for a long time but the colors were perfect. I attached some white satin ribbon and overlaid it with a bit of silver cording.
So, does this neat snowflake wreath inspire you?? If so, I'd love to see what you do with it!! (I'm totally trying to get some Christmas cards done early this year!!). Leave me a comment and a link to your inspired creation. :D

Such an elegant Christmas card -- it definitely inspires me to dust off my snowflake sets! Right now I'm working on a House Mouse Christmas card; no snow, but lots of candy ;) .
