Christmas? :)

I found this challenge blog, Jingle Belles, a couple of days ago, and I love it! What a great way to keep up with Christmas cards all through out the year! No more rushing at the last minute, and maybe I will actually get to send them this year! :) The latest theme is Buttons (or eyelets, or brads.) I am an eyelet and brad person myself (although I do use buttons occasionally.) I have a million of them and for some reason haven't been using them lately, so I pulled them out and used the Mojo Monday sketch #228 (It was last weeks sketch and I loved it so much I used it again!) Here is my take...
I used eyelets on the background shape and brads for the centers of the snowflakes. :) The patterned paper is DCWV from the Christmas and Winter stack. The zig zag paper and card stock are Recollections.
Here's a close up of the layers. The snowflakes are both Martha Stewart punches, I used the Fiskar's Apron Lace edge punch on the zig zag paper, the ribbon is from my stash, and the stamp is from Studio G.

I like this sketch a lot, and it really helped me to work on my layering technique. Hope you like it, I sure do! :)

Thanks for looking and feedback is always appreciated! :)
