Heart 2 Heart - Shaker Ornaments

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart challenge - this one titled Season's Greetings. 

As Christmas Day is just around the corner, this is my LAST Christmas card. All of mine were sent out long ago but I wanted to make one last shaker card for this challenge. 

I chose to use a blue and silver colour scheme. The blues are a mixture from Close To My Heart - Carolina, Bluebird and Sapphire. I used the snowflake paper from the "Tis the Season" paper pack for the front of my card and using die cuts for the ornaments, I stamped the images underneath. Piecing the foam tape took forever to ensure there was a "pool" for the sequins for each ornament. 

An old and a new stamp set combined for the ornaments and the decorative branch above. 

Merry Christmas to you and yours - although I will be back on December 24th with another card for my other design team :)
