ATC : Beautiful

My dear friend and I have started a monthly ATC exchange and this is my January ATC.  The challenge was to use the colors brown and blue and to reference snow in some way.  The blue card stock and the brown metallic paper were both plain and were decorated with different stamps, inks and embossing powder.  I hand beaded the snowflake then tacked it down with clear nylon thread.
