Christmas Card Challenge - Photo Inspiration

Hi friends!  The Christmas Card Challenge has a great photo inspiration for you this week!  Just take a look at this great snowman snow globe!  I love them!  I also just love the background of this photo...my inspiration!

I just watched a video from Kristina Werner where she created a background similar to this (hers was a bit better than mine!).  I used three different blue distress inks and a black one to create this night sky.  The stars/falling snow was created with a white pen.  This is actually a shaker card and that snowman is from a set my friend Diane Zechman designed for Sweet and Sassy stamps.  So cute!  I colored him with copic markers.  


You can see more from the design team on the Christmas Card Challenge blog.
Thanks for stopping by today!

O my gosh! This is just too cute! I love that the snowman is inside the shaker - it's almost like a little snowglobe effect on a card. Thanks for sharing your talent!
