Thinking Ahead

I like to send cards when they aren't expected.  The MFT Sketch & MFT Snowflake dies were used on this one ready for a friend this winter. Can you tell I never got my self-adhesive Fun Foam put away?! I'll tell you--that stuff is addicting! Thankfully, it's less than $1 per sheet.  Maybe I can become a spokesperson for them--LOL!  The foil is a little bit trickier with the points of the snowflakes, but still easy & so worth it. The square is a left over piece from another die cut & I used some old double sided adhesive to attach navy glitter.  The background is done with an old Cuttlebug folder, but I did the other side of the card for a debossed look which I really like.  
The sentiment (stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black) & die cut flag are both MFT.  My sister loves blue & silver, so may have to make another one of these with a Christmas sentiment.  I'm also entering the Melt challenge at Inkspirational.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
