CCAYR mid-month

This is my first card for the December mid-month inspiration on CCAYR - please click to see the lovely crafting of others in the team and please join in the challenge here.

I randomly stamped the shaped card with inked a couple of snowflake stamps from an Inkadinkado set with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail powder. The framed picture is one that I've had for ages from a Kanban kit - the picture is repeated on the domed acetate which makes it look a bit 3D in real life.

This is also for:
