My first snow globe!

Hello everyone!
This is the cutest image that Melyssa made for the first 100 Whimsie Doodle members on Paper Craft Planet. It is called Snow Friends and is just the sweetest couple ever!

I finally made a snow globe card using the shaker technique. It was easier than I thought it would be! (This one is for you Ann, you inspired me with all of your beautiful snow globe cards!)
The circle was cut out with a nestie, then I attached the clear cardstock to the back of the DP.
I used Polar White Flower Soft for the inside of the globe, then mixed in glitter to have it sparkle a bit more.
I secured the image on to the rest of the layers with my ATG then decorated around it.

And here's the inside with the coordinating sentiment:

This ties in nicely with a couple of challenges this week:
Digital Tuesday's Holiday Wishes
All Sorts' Bring Out Your Bling
La-La Lands Weekly Challenge of Die Cuts and Punches
Thank you for coming by, have a safe and wonderful Wednesday!
*Love and Aloha*

Just beautiful Joni - you're a star! I love the way you have created the base - I can feel more snowglobes coming on.
