Color me HAPPY!

I was so happy to return from the DR to a new box of brand new goodies!  I know I have a lot (okay, more than a lot!) to work with, but I have been "working" so much lately that I feel like I have run out of ideas for the things I have!  This fits in great with the challenge at Just Add Ink this week, which is to use anything new to you!  The challenge at Color Me Beautiful this week is beautiful, and good for different times of the year. 
If it was summer, I would have done a fresh, beachy card for sure!  Since winter is just around the corner, I decided to go that route instead. 
As soon as I pulled Snowflake Soiree out of the box, I had a feeling it might coordinate with the Floral Frames Framelits.  And it does!  Yay!  Now I feel like I will be able to get my money out of those framelits.  I haven't really used them all that much yet.  I shadow-stamped the snowflakes in the lighter colors to get them all in there. I have been using this effect a lot lately and love the results!  The center is a Vintage Faceted Designer Button adhered with Crystal Effects.  That stuff is like cement!
