This is sooo cute, Monique! LOVE how you used our snowflake paper! You've got me eyeballing it trying to figure out how to incorporate it into my CTD card this week ;] Also love how you tied off the large snowflake with the baker's twine. Your adorable little snowman, the red stitching and the red snowflakes are the perfect finishing touch!!
