Snowflakes at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown

Evening All
The Theme challenge this week over at 52(Christmas) Card Throwdown is Snowflakes.
As you know I have been making Christmas cards this weekend, so this is one of them which included some snowflakes embossed with Stampendous Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Enamel which I bought at SirStampalot.
The snowflake stamp is also an old design from Stampendous M122 Snow Swirl which I bought on Saturday at Davina's. I'm sure that I probably have this stamp somewhere but as she has 50% off all of her wood mounted stamps at the moment it was easier to buy it than spend hours wading through my stash.
How naughty is that!! Still I will find it a good home if I do discover that I already have it, so someone will benefit.
The mouse on the bauble is an image from my stash but is by Great Impressions and is called Franklin Hanging On.
I used it for a magazine article some years ago but it has remained a favourite of mine. It is available from Horseshoe Craft.
The card base is made using a combination of scalloped and plain circles cut using Grand and regular size nesties. I sponged a little Stormy Sky distress ink around the edges of the white card.
I hope that you like it and that maybe you will be inspired to make a couple of Christmas cards to add to your   stash for this year.

I would like to enter this into a couple of other challenges
