Snowflakes Are Winter's Butterflies

For the last week I've been pondering CASology's cue word CRYSTAL and my first thought was a chandelier but I couldn't come up with a design then last night I had one of those moments and today I made this...

Do you get it?

Yup, snowflakes are made up of tiny ice crystals... et voila :)

I've stamped the snowflakes from Uniko in Distress Oxide tumbled glass, spun sugar and shaded lilac.  The sentiment is heat embossed in silver to give a nice shine and because silver and pastels always look pretty.

I've finished the card off with a few co-ordinating gems and pearls for added sparkle.
