Christmas Art Journal: Day 13

I've been neglecting posting the rest of my Christmas art journal pages....so here's Day 13...I call it Ode to a Snowflake!
This is the back of page 12 and a card insert....I decided a blue, white, and silver color combo would represent snow and cold!  I used some chipboard punch outs to add a three dimensional effect to the page!

Here's the rest of Ode to a Snowflake...on the back of the card I glued a poem I wrote about a snowflake and then more blue, white, and silver on the opposite page. There are also some really pretty blue colored "jewels" on the accents. It's an "ok" page...not really Christmas-y but still fun!
