Shaker Joy

Hi!  Today's card uses Cecile's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches newest challenge and I decided to make a shaker card.  

My original intention was to use the circle in the centre for the shaker element, but then I decided to make my first edge-to-edge shaker card.  

I started by adhering some patterned paper to a square panel and then added some stamp packaging over the top, chucking in some sequins before sealing the fourth edge.  I then adhered that to a white card base.

For the circle element on the sketch, I deviated somewhat and added the word "Joy" in gold foil cardstock.  The "to the world" is hot foiled.  

For the snowflakes I die-cut three different ones from both white glitter cardstock and some deep pink and adhered them together, slightly offset for a shadow effect.

And that's my card.  Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you'll check out the wonderful cards made by the DT.
