CHNC Extra DT Post for August 2017

Howdy folks!  It's that time of the month again...the beginning of a new month means some new Bugaboo Christmas inspiration from the Craftyhazelnut's Extra Design Team gals.  Here is mine:

For this card, I used Winter circle sentiments--let-it-snow (retired).  I colored it up in shades of blue, and then searched thru my hoard, supply of Christmas paper and cardstock for something to match.  I found this snowflake paper from a 12x12 Love, Nicole pad that seemed to fit the bill nicely.  I decided the layout should just be simple cardstock layers with the circle in the middle to let the image and snowflake paper shine.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the snowballs and the snowman, and also to the centers of some snowflakes on the dp.
