Make A Shaker Card at Incy Wincy

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy is to make a shaker card and we have a fab sponsor for you this week.

Prize 3 images of winners choice.
I have used First Taste of Snow which you can find here (I've linked to Karens blog as her shop link doesn't seem to working as I'm writing this). I've coloured this littel cutie with my promarkers and dug out my snow writer for the snow. I've used a circular card bland to make this easel card by folding the front in half. For the shaker element I made a little circular box into which I've stuck the image, my shaker part is some small pearl beads in white cream, blue grey and pink.

The sentiment is a die cut snowflake which I've stamped a sentiment from Lilli of the Valley. This is mounted onto a circle of mirri card which I have embossed and finished with a couple of swirls cut from whiteglitter card.

Box Of Chocolates

 I made this box from the instructions here for Aimee to give to her teacher on Friday.
The DP is from the free pad of Pink Petticoat papers that came in a magazine a while ago. The image is of course Lili of the Valley which was part of my prize from Karen for winning the last MSE challenge. I have coloured her with promarkers and added some stickles to her wings, pom poms and skirt. The flower is punched with a woodware punch.
Around the box I have used a border punch on some more of the DP and finished it off with some silver ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
