The theme this month at A Blog Named Hero is "winter" and what could be more wintery that lots of snowflakes!  Especially here in Nebraska!!!

I made my own background with individual stamps, but this one would be much easier as it's a wonderful snowflake background stamp.  My background was stamped in Versamark and clear embossed.  Then I die cut the large snowflake (sorry it's discontinued) and made my card into a shaker using some iridescent sequins.  There is silver foil paper behind the die cut so the whole card is quite shiny.  I didn't add a sentiment as I thought it would distract from the design.

Be sure to enter a winter card in our challenge this month - there's a prize for two winners - $50 and $25 prizes are up for grabs!

I am entering my card in the A2Z December challenge - Winter Wonderland.

Thanks for visiting today and keep warm!
