A Shaker Card for Allsorts

Good morning. Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon. It's Saturday so that means it's time for another new challenge at 

and this week the lovely Nicola has picked the theme


Now I have to confess that this is my first attempt at a shaker card and I immediately thought of a Christmas card and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out :o)

I recently bought this fab Mo Manning image - NP Employee #5533 - isn't he just delightful!!
Image coloured with FM's & PM's and Glamour Dust added to hat.

Design Papers from stash - I think the snowflake one is Hunkydory but not sure and the text one could be Pink Petticoat.
I made my shaker aperture using Spellbinders regular squares and added Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels and some Irridescent glitter as my shaker bits.

This also used:
Memory Box Elegant Scroll 
Spellbinders Banner Labels & Scalloped Edgabilities
Adhesive Crystal Gems

Challenges I would like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - Shaker Card
Digital Tuesday - Winter Blues
Pile it On - Sparkle & Shine
Stamptacular Sunday - Loaded with Layers

Thanks for your visit today.
We are going to another 1st Birthday Party this afternoon for my nephew's son Ethan - luckily it's indoors as the weather has been awful all week and today's forecast is no better. I will post some photos later in the week.
Have a great day whatever you are doing.

Don't forget there is still time to enter my birthday candy - details on sidebar - winner will be drawn on my birthday 1st May and announced with my Oldie But Goodie DT post :o)
