Decorate To Celebrate Challenge #66 - Snowflake/Snowman Decorations

I am so excited for my first post as a Decorate to Celebrate Design Team member!  And this year DTC has changed things up a bit - there is going to be a theme and you can either create a project with that theme, or submit any decorations you create for a birthday.  The first theme of the year is Snowflake/Snowman Decorations.  Let's celebrate everything wonderful about snowy nights, snowball fights, and even Frosty the Snowman with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!  You have until 11:59 pm, Tuesday, January 21st to link up your projects and be eligible for your chance to win from our sponsor this challenge, Norma - Pink Bling Crafter!  
We are excited for the changes and hope you are too!

For my project, I decided I needed a Winter Centerpiece for my table, and came up with a Snowflake Bouquet.  I used Cricut Art Philosophy's snowflake1 and snowflake2 to create this fun decoration.  I alternated using some aqua blue paper, some solid and some with subtle patterns, and white cardstock for my snowflakes, cut them at various sizes and adhered them to some white floral wire.  My vase is filled with white batting for a snow effect and tied some tulle around it.  I think it turned out super cute!

Hopefully you have checked out all the other DT projects - they are fabulous!  
And be sure to link up your decorations, I'm anxious to see what you come up with!

Thanks for checkin' in!

Here's a close up of the snowflakes, you can see the aqua pattern paper a little better.

I will also be entering this over at Craftin' Desert Divas Winter Linky Party.
