My favorite winter symbol

Hey there, welcome back to my blog.

Do you have a favorite winter symbol?  Okay at least one that you use for stamping holiday cards?  Mine is snowflakes.  When I saw the inspiration photo of the current Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, I know I want join in the fun, because one of the requirement is to use snowflakes!   And I use the sketch for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch for my card.  And I will link up to this week's Simon Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes.

Here's the inspiration photo and sketch:
