A Flakey Thank You

Hello crafty friends! I hope everyone's weekend is off to a fantastic start! I have to make this brief because I'm still suffering from this pesky nerve damage in my left arm & typing is extremely uncomfortable. Ahh, the things we endure for our love of crafting, huh? Unfortunately, I haven't been able to craft much at all because of my arm, but I made this card last week & wanted to share while it's still Winter & snowflakes are still relevant. I realize that bright pink snowflakes aren't exactly realistic, but just go with it (I'm medicated, lol)....
