Gecko Galz - January Customer Challenge

Happy New Year, my dear friends!
Welcome to my first post of 2017! 

It's the 1st of the month, 
so there's a new Customer Challenge beginning over at Gecko Galz.
The theme for January is "Let It Snow."

Here's the fun card I made.
It's a simplified shaker card.

 I cut the background paper, and then added the colored snowman image.
Then I cut a piece of acrylic to fit over top, placing some fun snowflake confetti behind it.
I then cut the pretty snowflake frame to fit.
Finally, I did some wonky, uneven stitching around the frame to hold it all together.
Oh, and I added some rhinestones.

Here's a closer look at the snowman.
Isn't he adorable...and SO happy! :o)
You can also see the snowflakes floating around.

Other Materials Used:
Cut File: Lori Whitlock - Snowflake Frame;
Cricut Explore Air;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Crafts - Rhinestones;
Unknown Snowflake Confetti.

Gecko Galz Products Used:
The blue background paper is from the Blue Christmas Craft Kit.
The pretty snowflake frame was cut from a paper from the Winter Wonderland Digital Paper Pack.
The sweet snowman is from the Snow Man Way Digital Stamps.

and to read all the details of the challenge!
