Let it Snow!!!

I started getting ready for the holidays in July this year, so I have had a VERY long time to look forward to this season. As an artist & designer, I am nearly overwhelmed each year by the smorgasbord of wonderful designs that I see showcased at this time. It's candy for the eyes! So this time around, I got to add a little of my own "spice" to the mix with my very UN-traditional snowflake design. It all started as a series of sketches and at the time I was also designing some flowers for another project and the 2 ideas sort of combined into one. Have a merry, minty Christmas everyone and enjoy all of "snow" (hopefully fake).
