Snow Much Fun!

Good morning, I hope that you are ready to play? Over on the ABC Christmas Blog we have a new challenge for you and it is going to be lots of fun.  Our challenge theme this time is

W for Winter Sports.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge;
Simon Says Stamp are offering $15 voucher to one lucky participant
Photobucket
Stamp Fairy are offering 3 digital images of the winner's choice to another lucky participant.

and
 

I have chosen to use a favorite StampFairy character George for my card this week and this cutie is all set for some winter fun on the slopes.


As this wonderful image of George reminded me of a scene in a snow globe I decided that it was the perfect excuse to make a shaker card. I have used white tinsel glitter to fill the shaker as it has a shimmer that reminds me of fresh fallen snow. The layout of the card has been kept simple to allow the shaker to stand out and I have added only a few simple snowflakes as embellishment to pick up on the theme.

I hope that you will join with some winter fun of your own. Be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog to see the rest of the gorgeous DT creations.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Lovely shaker card, Carissa, George is adorable and the papers so pretty. I was planning to make a shaker card myself, but it's no good to skate in snow.
