Bah Humbug meets Winter Wonderland :-)

Definitely THE last card for today ,, but guess what !! I just saw that I won a spot prize on the Bah Humbug Challenge :-) I had just gone to have a look at the GD and DT cards ,,again ,, whilst the stickles was drying and my name was there in big RED letters :-) Thanks girls ,, I am really looking forward to seeing what the surprise is ,,,, hopefullly not a lump of coal ,, lol :-),, being a miners daughter I was often threatened with that if I was naughty :-)

The theme on the Bah Humbug Challenge is make the text the focal point and the Winter Wonderland is Monochromatic ,, I hope the touch of red and orange doesn't disqualify me ! :-/
I used this very cute Greeting Farm snowman image and made a shaker card using him as the 'O' in Snow :-) The paper is from a wild Rose Studio CD and a little Funky Fairys paper too . the S, N AND W were cut out on my cricut and smothered in star dust stickles. the actual snow is Diamond Dust ,, it really looks like icy snow and is quite heavy so it falls nicely and you can really hear it shake :-) I added a few PM glimmer dots to finish.

I am also entering this into the Anyone for Anya Challenge which is Monochromatic too :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I am going to have something to eat and then a hop around to see what you have all been doing this weekend :-)

congrats on your surprise win - sure it won't be coal. Love your card - silly me hadn't thought of the word snow when I was playing - of course it's just perfect.
I agree with you on the diamond dust it is perfect for shakers - such a satisfying sound.
