Second card for CCAYR December

This is my second design card for CCAYR December challenge: anything but a square or a rectangle. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries there.

The label shaped black card blank was stamped randomly with a couple of snowflake stamps from the Indadinkado set - inked with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail. Other label shapes matted into the centre with another stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with the silver detail.
