Let's Chill

Good morning everyone!

Today is the start of a new challenge at House of Cards and this month we would like you to create a card using Metallic elements!
For today's project I decided to make my first ever shaker card! :) It features three images from the Swanky Snowdudes stamp set by Paper Smooches and the "Let's Chill" sentiment is included in the set! The images were colored with Copics, fussy cut out and then I added some sparkle to the grey areas with the Wink of Stella pen. The red background was embossed with the CB Snowflake folder and the snowflakes were stamped using a Hero Arts stamp and Tsukineko metallic silver ink. I cut the metallic silver frame with a MFT die and the shaker portion is filled with punched snowflakes, sequins, silver glitter and metallic silver lined seed beads.
Well, there you have it~ my first shaker card and my first Christmas card for 2015!

I hope you can join us this month and don't forget to pop on over to the main challenge blog for more inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
