Card: Snowflakes and Leaves

Challenge #2 at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog this week is "Let's See That Hoard!"  The challenge is to showcase your hoarded items and use a palette of blues.  Okay, so the question is:  what DON'T I hoard?  This card represents some of my precious hoarded pretties:  anything with snowflakes, anything with leaves, brads, gems, ribbon, stamps, ink, stencils, cardstock, and (of course!) paper.  If you look closely at the photo (click on it to get an enlarged view) you will see that the background is embossed.  I used a stencil with an embossing mat and cranked 'er through the old Cuttlebug.  As I type this it is snowing here.  The expected accumulation is 3-6 inches.  I LOVE SNOW!
