Singing About Snowflakes

Sometimes things just fall together.  I found several challenges that would work together and then I created this card for them.  I combined musical themes with snowflakes.  Originally, I was going to use the song, Here Comes Suzy Snowflake.  You will see the music actually has lyrics on it.  But for one of the challenges for song inspiration, I'm going with the Suzy Snowflake song!

Helene, I like the sketch with your orientation better. And your card is so pretty - soft and sweet. Love how you did the ribbon/crochet trim and the button on the snowflake is an unexpected but wonderful touch. Thanks for sharing :D
