The 12 Months of Christmas - Challenge #3

Hi and welcome to The 12 Months of Christmas Challenge #3.

Here is what I came up with for our theme of, "Snow".

 
Ever since our move to Arizona the memory of winter's wrath has faded. We do get some snow on occasion, over New Year's weekend we had 6" of the white stuff fall on us. We stayed home for 2 days, that's how long it took for the snow to melt.

I wanted to make a shaker card, this image was perfect for that. When I shake the card it snows inside the window.
 
I used this month's paper, I embossed that using my Cuttlebug and snow embossing folder.
The sentiment is from: DDDoodles_HH_WordArt\DDDoodles_HH_WordArt
I added a piece of rick rack on one side of the snow layer and rounded off the corners of the card face.
I used mini beads inside the shaker element.
