Merry Monday Challenge

Over at Linda inspired us to make a Snow Globe card. Loved the chance to try another Shaker card, since I don't make them very often and they are always a challenge for me. I find that with each Shaker card I make I find new ways to go about it and I am getting quicker at making them.
*Snow Globe - Is a Cricut image cut on Explore
*Globe Scene - Is cut from an old Christmas card.
*I used a Shaker 3" circle mold and filled it with assorted items such as tiny beads, tiny gold stars, fluffy snow and clear sequins.
*Foil Cardstock -  From a very old all foil stack I have from American Crafts called "AC Specialty Paper". A very nice assortment of all colors of 12X12 sheets in it. I'm pretty sure when it runs out I will never find another again, I bought it on clearance, too. 
*Sentiment - Old rubber stamp inked using Stazon Black ink. The tag is a Spellbinder with ribbon through it.
 *Christmas Tree Branches - Cut using a Martha Stewart punch, and added a pearl to them.
Sorry about the photo, very hard to take a good one with all the reflective materials.
Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!
