Christmas Critter Shaker Card

You guys know I like putting challenges together. Here are some from yesterday and today that I found quite challenging to work together, but I LOVE the finished product!

Tuesday Morning Sketches (new for me!)
Merry Monday - Critters
The Pink Elephant - Shaker Cards
Clear it out - Pink/Pink Things
Colour Q

For my pink I used Smoothie (translated from Melon Mambo), and I used Smoothie mini medleys as my "pink things." Wonderland was the paper I thought of for this combination, so I just had to add some smoothie cardstock and accents and we were good to go!

This was my first shaker card. I just happened to have a piece of acetate from my Ariana assortment that I didn't want to throw away. I stamped the penguin in Outdoor Denim and smoothie and layered him onto a piece of Wonderland B&T. I put Prisma Glitter and silver sequins in my shaker. They don't move much, but they're pretty! I wanted Grey Flannel cardstock for the background, but I didn't have any left, so I random stamped White Daisy with Grey Flannel snowflakes, and I love how it turned out!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Smoothie
B&Ts: Wonderland
Stamps: Wintry Wishes
Ink: Outdoor Denim, Smoothie, Grey Flannel
Other: Smoothie Mini Medleys, Prisma Glitter, silver sequins (not CTMH)
