Making Spirits Bright

Here is this weeks sketch from Card Patterns. I've said this before, but I'm saying it again, sketches are great to get your creative juices flowing!
For this card I also decided to incorporate Dawn's Rasberry Suite Color Challenge, only I missed the deadline - Oh well! These colors are beautiful together, but for some reason I had a hard time deciding on what direction I wanted the theme of my card to take.

I decided on the snowflake/Christmas theme because of the new Jingle papers from CTMH. The paper pattern already had the swirl design I needed for the sketch. The rest came together from there. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: PTI (Polka Dot Basics II), CTMH (December Word Puzzle)
Cardstock: PTI (Dark Chocolate, Kraft, Aqua Mist)
Patterned Paper: CTMH (Jingle)
Inks: CTMH (Colonial White, Chocolate)
Accessories: CTMH (Tulip sparkle brads), Marvy Snowflake Punch (blue) and Martha Stewart Snowflake punch.
