Holly Jolly Let It Snowflakes

Happy Boxing Day!  If you've always wondered what that meant, no, it's not related to the annual Airing of Grievances as part of Festivus.  In Britain, families would have a big Christmas celebration and dinner, and then the day after Christmas they'd box up all the leftovers and take them to their servants and others who were less fortunate.  I think mostly anymore it's just a bank holiday, so bonus day off after Christmas.  So now you know : )

I made this for a combo SCS sketch/color challenge a while back, and while I wanted to use the Bracket Tag punch, at the time the only festive stamp I had to fit in there was this Holly Jolly Christmas one.  Call me weird, but I always thought that I should have used that one with some holly stamps, maybe my brain is too literal.  But then Best of Snow came out and I fixed it!

It's a bit gloomy here today so the colors in this pic aren't as good, and the rhinestone kind of photographed funny, but at least "Let it Snow" makes much more sense to my brain than "Holly Jolly Christmas" and the snowflakes.

Have a wonderful day!

LOTS of sparkle! I like the way you put the design at an angle. Very nice.
