I've been pinned!

I was on Pinterest recently and saw that a card of mine was pinned for the first time ever.  I'm not afraid to admit that it made me happy to be pinned!  You can see it here.  I thought I'd share the card here as I know that a lot of people are looking for holiday card ideas.
I used a sketch for this card that I found on Pinterest.  The sketch that I used can be seen here.  It is from cardabilities, which I was unfamiliar with before I found this sketch.  Looks like a fun blog if you like to make cards, which I do on occasion.
I used mostly scraps from the October 2011 Studio Calico kit, Field Guide.  The velvet trim was from an older kit. The Merry Christmas stamp that I had planned on using ended up in the garbage (very cheap one from Michael's or something - apparently not worth the 99 cents or whatever that I paid for it), so I just typed the words MERRY CHRISTMAS several times and added a strip of it.  I used Mr. Huey SHINE on the snowflake and it added just a perfect touch of glimmer.
I've been adding twine to everything lately and I think it was a perfect touch on this card.  
I loved this sketch as it is so versatile!  I have also used it for a birthday card already with a ladybug instead of a snowflake.  
Enjoy your day everyone!
