Virginia's View Challenge #12

I'm so excited to announce that I am guest designing 
(along with the rest of the Pretty Pink Posh DT)
for Virginia's View Challenge this month!


This month's challenge is all about Shaker Cards.


For my card, I decided to make a winter-themed thank you card that I sent to my brother &
sister-in -law to say thank you for the Christmas gifts they sent us.
I mixed some white glitter with Pretty Pink Posh's Silver Shimmer Seed Beeds.


I started with some classic kraft cardstock for my background.
I diecut a piece of aqua mist cardstock with the Stitched Duos 3 die and stamped
the trees from Wplus9's Winter Woodland set in classic kraft.
I used both dies from Stitched Duos 3 dies to create my window
and stamped my sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's Hand Lettered Winter.
I diecut the thanks from pure poppy cardstock using Papertrey Ink's Wet Paint Cuts.
I filled my shaker with some white glitter and Pretty Pink Posh's Silver Shimmer Seed Beeds.
Here's a close-up:

Be sure to check out the Virginia's View Challenge to see
the amazing shaker cards that the Pretty Pink Posh DT created for the challenge.

Oh how I wish I had that die!!! Love everything about this card. The kraft with the blue and white is so dreamy and love the background inside the shaker. Those sea beads look like frost too, which makes it even better. You so deserve the GD post!!
