Xmouse Ornament!

I'm back - sorry for missing but we went on holiday to North Yorkshire for a week with Whisper and then once back and i've been busy with 4 year old son's inductions for school (he starts in September), washing clothes and general getting back to normal things !!! and this week is not much better either, as it seems to be full of parties for son !!!, so this may be the only card i get round to making this week.

With the image i've used today my lovely friend Janice had sent me a couple of images, but i decided what i wanted to do with it, would mean buying it, so i did in the sales and am glad i did, as i think it's going to be very versatile ( i versamarked the snowflake, then added silver embossing powder & heated it). I wanted to also use my MS snowflake round the corner punches to make the edge of the card, for a different effect.
