PTI Blog Hop Time!

It's the 25th - so it's Papertrey's monthly blog hop today!

This month's challenge was to utilize a non-traditional color scheme for a holiday card.  I fell in love with this color combo when I saw it:
However - when I sat down to make something...I think this looks more like a Spring card, instead of Christmas, lol.  

I liked the idea of the colored snowflakes...and I liked the idea of the glittery flourish...but I can't help but think upon quick glance that those snowflakes are flowers...maybe it's the pearls??  I don't know...but anyway -- I'm loving all of the inspiration I've seen so far, can't wait to take some time tonight, and hop around some more.  Thanks for stopping by -- wishing you all a GREAT day!!

Supplies (all PTI unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Fancy Flourishes, Stylish Sentiments: Holiday
Ink: Versamark, Berry Sorbet
Paper: Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss, Harvest Gold, Select White
Accessories: Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Heat & Stick Powder (SU!), Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU!), Pearls and rhinestones (Reflections by Michaels)
