Holiday Thanks Shaker Card

Hello, everybody!  Happy Saturday!  Today I have a holiday thank-you shaker card to share!  I think it's important to have some thank-you cards ready for the holidays, so I made this fun shaker!

The cute image is from Your Next Stamp Frosty Friends and I coloured it with my markers and then fussy-cut. I used my new Anna Griffin Shaker Window Dies to make an ornament shaker! These dies were on clearance at the Canadian shopping channel so I was thrilled to get them! The red and silver glitter cardstock are from Dollarama, and the plaid paper is from Your Next Stamp Crazy for Coffee. Inside the shaker, the background is embossed with a snowflake pattern and I added lots of small clear sequins and white snowflake sequins. For the little Thanks tag, I used A Jillian Vance Tiny Tags stamp and die set and added a crinkle ribbon bow (DL.ART Christmas Red) topped with a snowflake sequin.  I finished off the card by adhering some pearly snowflakes.

I was inspired by a number of challenges:
Allsorts Thank You or New Year 1/3
Artsystamper Digitals 4 Give Thanks 2/3
Aud Sentiments Thank You Sentiment 2/5
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional "R" (Red) UE
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE
Creative Moments 181 Ribbon and/or Bows 1/3
Dare 2B Artzy Thankful 2/3
Die Cut Divas Thanksgiving or Thank You 2/4
Di's Digi Designs Show Thanks 1/3
DL.ART November Linky UE 1/d
DL.ART Thankful Thursday Thankful Wk 3
Kat Scrappiness Let's Give Thanks UE
Let's Craft and Create AG Optional Thank You 2/3
Mod Squad Thanks or Thankful Shaker Card 1/3
The House That Stamps Built Repeat Impressions DCC N619 ~ Frame It 2/3
The Paper Funday AG Thanksgiving 2/4
Your Next Stamp 127 Mad for Plaid 1/3

I've also been inspired all month by Beccy's Place and her Month of Holiday Cards alphabet challenge.  I still have "K", "N", "Y", and "Z" to go but in the meantime I'm revisiting "B" for bow.

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Your shaker card is fabulous Kitty, the bauble shape was a great choice for the window. I like how you've layered the mouse and cat over the top too. The little pearly snowflakes are gorgeous and I really like the lovely red ribbon bow. Pretty!

Adorable shaker card, the images are adorable and beautifully coloured, I have glitter paper but it has adhesive on the back and I can't seem to die cut it.
