Let It Snow.......just not yet!

I have been in a funk since the election.  Anybody out there sharing my gloom and doom?  Anyway, not much going on creatively until this past weekend when I started on the beauty above.  It was very simple just time consuming.  I used an 18" circle of styrofoam from which I cut a large circle in the middle.  The edges are 2.5" across.  It seemed like a good width.  Then I wrapped the styrofoam with wide white ribbon.  Get the cheapest you can find as it really doesn't show but keeps all the little balls of styrofoam from falling about.  The dies I used are the new Tim Holtz Snowflake Rosette, large and small, and a Sizzix snowflake die, and the new SU Snowflake.  I used three kinds of glitters, various colors of Stickles, pearls, SU's faceted buttons and a whole lot of hot glue!  I also used several shades of white for the papers, all were Bazzil from Michaels.  The thicker paper works better with the Snowflake Rosette dies.  It's kind of dark here now and the pics aren't great.   Doesn't do the wreath justice.   Be sure to click on the pictures to get an up close view.  It's very sparkly and light reflective.   I will try to get better ones tomorrow and post them.
