LRW - So Flaky

This week, the Little Red Wagon challenge is being hosted by Jan!!  She want to see snowflakes, and because no 2 snowflakes are ever alike, I think there are going to be a lot of great projects this week.

I wanted to try something a little different, so I made a shaker card.  I used up some old scraps I had in my stash, but the best part was that I actually managed to get the word 'snow' to line up perfectly inside my window :)

I added a combination of beads and sequins for the filler.  This is the tricky part.....because they want to jump around and stick to the adhesive.  I also added a nice big chipboard snowflake with a button and twine to accent.

I added some of my favourite ribbon, twine and an enamel dot, along with a tiny tag that says 'brrr'.

A big 'thank you' to Jan for this awesome challenge.  I am super happy with my card and had a lot of fun playing along.

Be sure to visit the other DT blogs (click on their names on my sidebar) and see what 'flakey' projects they came up with.  If you play along, visit the Little Red Wagon blog and link up your creation.

I also entered my card in the following challenges:

Order of the Opus - Let it Snow
Shopping Our Stash - Favourite Technique
