CCT and Just one layer!

EEk! I forgot it was Thursday!  So better late than never, here is my card for the Cute Card Thursday one layer challenge.  Our sponsor is All Dressed Up! please stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the team have created.

One layer challenges scare me rigid!  I do like to embellish, a little bit any way, so how to incorporate a touch of embellishment onto just one layer?  Well, this is what I made:

I cut a piece of white card to C6 size but as a tent fold, then simple ran a score tool around the outside edge.  Then, having taken some inspiration from cards on Pinterest, I've die cut the snowflakes and text from sparkly silver card and stuck them down flat onto my base, so just one layer!

Embellishment wise, I've put a piece of lace across at a wonky angle (I'm good at those!) and tied a snowman charm onto silver cord and wrapped that around on top of the lace.

'Twas made just before I came down with the bugs a few weeks back - and I'm still suffering!  I am looking at it now and want to add a gem into the centre of those snowflakes .. .. ..

And, the snowflakes are cut with a die in the Marianne Design set LR0327 called Anjas' circle. It's my favourite snowflake so far this year.

No challenges that I can link up with, let me know if you can think of any.

Thanks for stopping by - I have to finish Mum's birthday card and get the house ready for the family invasion .. .. and the tumble dryer is making a terrible noise!
