Little Boy Blue

I've never tried this shape card before, but I found this excellent tutorial and here is the result. The metallic look snowflakes came form Home Bargains a couple of years ago; they were strung together and sold as gift 'ribbon' - didn't quite see it myself, but I did see the potential as an embellishment so snagged myself a couple of packs.
I've entered this card into Top Tip Tuesday; my tip is to use Ranger Glossy Accents as glue to attach heavier hard to stick embellishments - it really is an excellent adhesive.
