Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Snow

The challenge this week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge is to create a card with snow on it. I bought a little packet of fake snow at the NEC last year and I thought it would be brilliant to make a shaker card with! I used a chipboard frame and covered it with acetate, I then raised the frame using foam pads and added the snow within. I added a bit of ribbon and the sentiment is by DCWV. The image was coloured with distress inks (what else? lol!)
Love Becky xx
