A card using fabric

We were challenged at CASE Study  to CASE Niki Estes card, and to incorporate fabric.  If there's one thing I'm rich in, it's fabric.......as a former quilter, I was the queen of the quarter yards!   So when I began to think about CASEing Niki's card, I thought of snowflakes; sure enough, I had 2 samples to choose from:



supplies: white card stock, scrap of snowflake cotton fabric, 3 different punched and die-cut snowflakes, Our Daily Bread "Peace & Joy" sentiment, Versafine Lagoon Blue ink, sewing machine and white thread, pop-up adhesives

Here's Niki's card:


I'll also be entering this into the Moxie Fab World's texture challenge.
