So excited to show you what I made for this challenge!

I decided to make a "shaker card" and really wanted to use the Cardz TV Stamps set "Snow Day". I chose to use this cute snow bear from a Lettering Delights Cut Set "Nancy Happy Holiday". I used two different products for my "shakers" - some larger glitter and some white beads, both from Recollections. I added some more bling to my card with adhesive snowflakes and gems which I colored blue with my Bic Mark It pen. To bling up my card even more I used some stickles around the edge of my sentiment. My background paper has some sparkle too on the snowflakes but it is hard to see with all the other "bling" going on:-) This is my first ever shaker card and I fear I may have put too much glitter inside - my poor bear looks like he is in a blizzard, LOL!!  Now it is your turn - time to get your "bling on" and join us in the Cardz TV Stamps challenge - "Bling it Up!".  Go here to enter your project.
