Snowflakes in Australia

Time just seems to be rushing by, I hope you are all more organised than I am. I can't believe that Christmas is so close and I haven't shown many of  the cards I've made this year. 
Here is a card that I made for a lovely lady in Australia. In the northern hemisphere we associate Christmas with snow and frosty weather but in Australia it's Summer. I thought I'd send my friend some snow so she wouldn't feel left out.

I matted and layered ivory card and a paper from First Edition Silent Night before adding a strip of ivory satin ribbon.

The snowflakes are a mix of Spellbinder and Marianne dies. I used Salty Ocean and Antique Linen Distress Inks to colour them and added plenty of Shabby Blue Frantage for sparkle.

I covered the wooden frame with Frantage and added a banner that I'd stamped with a Docrafts sentiment. The card was finished with some icy blue gems.
I'm pleased to say that the snow made it safely to the other side of the world.
Now, back to those Christmas preparations for me. Have a lovely day whatever you're up to.
I've entered this card in the following challenges:
