This is my card for week 14 of the challenge on UK Scrappers to make 52 cards this year. (I am trying to make 52 Christmas Cards - and I might not be able to participate all year due to emigration, but we will see how we go).
Week 14 challenge was to use hexagons - luckily I had previously purchased the Hexagon Framelits from Sizzix, but they had been unused up to this point.
Seeing how I am all about using up the stash, the thing that was the focus of my stash busting mission is this snowflake ribbon which I have had for many years. I suspect it may have originally come from Costco, but certainly was a gift from my friend Tara who sometimes shares her stash largesse with me.
I scratched my head about the design for a good long while before coming up with this. I really like the colour scheme - wintry but fresh with the use of lime green. Glad to see that sequins have come back - not that I really care about fashion, but it may catch up with me eventually!

I was wondering where I'd put the message but luckily I had just the right niche tucked in on the ribbon. I don't often leave so much white space on the card, but I really like it and will replicate the design for the amount of ribbon I have! That was my last glittery aqua snowflake used up, so I will just substitute that for something else.
Four challenges down - more to go!
