A Winter Friend

Hi All!
This week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is "Winter".
I thought I'd cover a cheapy chipboard notebook I bought at a discount shop.
I'm not sure what I'll use it for, knowing me I'll probably look at it for a couple of months and give it away. :-)
My layout is just a free- form kind of patchwork. Pretty simple. Not much explaining to do here. 

Image: Mo Manning
Colors: Lyras and Prismacolors
Ribbon: form stash
Web Ribbon: Sew Sweet
metal flower: gift
button sticker: K&Co. (I think)
Adhesive Pearls: Recollections
