Here is the inspirational photo we were provided to work with. 
Isn't this so beautiful!! I love this gorgeous plate setting, wrapped in the blinged out rings!!
So for my card today, I grabbed the following items from the photo:
Silver, bling and snowflake

So I had these gorgeous papers from Webster's Pages: It's Christmas, so when I saw the snowflake paper, it created the direction of how I was going to create this card.
The snowflake is an SVG file from Silhouette, using silver metallic paper from Worldwin. 
I dust added glossy accents to the tips and dip them in Glitter Glass.  Added a white snowflake brad and crystal bling to the center.  The sentiment is from IBS: Holiday Sentiments
Stamped and embossed in silver embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by!
  Please join in the fun of our hop and make your way over to Rebecca Deeprose's  blog.

Hugs, 
Calypso
