Let it snow

Although temperatures are still very summery here in Greece, the meteorological autumn in this part of the world started on the 1st of September. Christmas will be here before you know it. So maybe it's time you all got started on your Christmas cards for this year, if you haven't started already. I know I have, and I love how my stash of Christmas cards is growing week by week, LOL.

The layout for this card was inspired by an older Papertake Weekly sketch (no. 61).

Materials used:
Digital image by Meljen's Designs
PPs by Marianne Design
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
Computer-generated sentiment
Lifestyle Crafts circle dies
Snowflakes - Silhouette (top two) and Cuttlebug die (bottom one)
