A Merry Monday Christmas Wish

I am beyond thrilled to say that I have the honor of being a guest 
designer over at the Merry Monday challenge blog. This week the 
theme was chosen by Sue and she has requested that we make a 
Christmas card with a frame on it. 

And here is my card for this challenge. I had such fun making this card.

I chose to use the On Film framelits die from Stampin' Up! but
after that I was a little stumped. I had a few different ideas but I
wasn't thrilled with any of them. One morning I woke up with an 
idea to make a shaker card and practically ran to my craft room 
to make it before I had to get ready for work. I think my favorite 
part is the pieces of 'snow' that look like they're falling and the 
big polka dot paper - sadly it's from a retired pack :(

I hope you'll head on over to the Merry Monday blog and check out
all the other cards there. Hopefully you'll be inspired to play along!

Happy Stampin'
