Winter Fun

Good morning!  We have a new sketch for you at From the Heart Stamps; along with the sketch is an optional twist...interactive cards.  Here is the sketch we are working with this week:

I searched for different types of interactive cards that would go with the sketch and decided to make a shaker card...I thought some "snow" would be perfect with the image.  I printed and colored my image, die cut it...and then realized that I had not left enough margin for a "frame"!  Ack!  On to plan B...I finished the card, minus the fun shaker effect.  I've done a bit of sponging, paper piercing, and added glitter and a snowflake for embellishing.  (I bet you are wondering why I have a winter card today after posting a couple of springy ones....  It was below zero yesterday and we are supposed to get 1-2 inches of snow tomorrow!  Will spring ever come?)
