Non-Traditional Colored Snowflake

Hello everyone, I have another snowflake card for you today.  I love the way it looks even though it is as far from the color of a snowflake as you can get.
I thought I would follow the colors in the paper to make this snowflake.  I made this card following a sketch (of course) and using papers from a DCWV Christmas stack from a year or so ago that I had in my stash.  The I guess since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month the pink fits right in.   It is actually pretty simple, I printed the circle sentiment using my printer on vellum then using the hinge method cut the circle out using my Cricut.  The more I do this the easier it gets.
I cut the snowflake in three layers from the Christmas Noel cartridge, there are a lot of cartridges that have a snowflake cut on them but I seem to like this one a lot.
Here is a closer look at the snowflake layers.  I cut the larger or shadow layer from a dark red paper and sprayed it with glimmer mist, then the next two layers I cut from kind of a hot pink color.  The middle layer I ran through my Xyron and covered it with pink glitter, the top layer I again sprayed with glimmer mist.  Then I added a few pink accent pearls and that's it.
So let me know what you think of my "pink" snowflake.  Thanks for stopping by.
