Snowflake Mobile C4C512- inspiration from a card

Hello, we are working our way through November, and I am on week 4 of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. I was trying to be creative with my challenges, so for this week I challenges the group to use a card that had been given to them as inspiration, it was allowed to be a homemade card or a store bought card. I choose a store bought birthday card I had received from my children, I like monochromatic cards, and this one had a peek-a-boo window that I thought would be fun. I added a pop out arm to create a mobile šŸ˜Š

So if you happen to follow my blog you might have noticed that this card uses the same colours as my last posted card, šŸ¤” well, after making the first card I was was left with some spare snowflakes kicking around, and I figured I could put them to good use, and since the card I was inspired by was a monochromatic card, the colours used sort of dictated themselves, plus they were still handy šŸ˜‚

The card stock used for this card is from Stampin Up and the colours are listed below. The large dies are from an old Stampin Up Bigz set. The small snow flakes are from my stash (not sure where they came from) and the mechanism arm for the mobile is from the Upsy Daisy die set from Karen Burniston,

These are the colours used, I forgot to add Brushed silver, as I used it for the greeting.

This mechanism is from the Upsy Daisy dieset from Karen Burniston and I really recommend watching the Upsy Daisy on assembly, it helps alot.
