CCAYR Mid Month Inspiration

Howdy folks!  I'm glad you could join me this evening for another Christmas card for 2017.  This is the card I created for the May Christmas Cards All Year Round "Precipitation" theme:
 
 
Of course, I went with some snow, and this adorable Bugaboo Eggbert image.  I chose this gorgeous piece of designer paper from my stash that I have been hoarding...unfortunately, the name of this paper is behind the piece I used on the card, and I didn't write it down, so I can't tell you what it is! :(  I wanted to make this a shaker, but I also didn't want to cover up any of that yummy paper, so I made it a see-thru shaker pocket, using my Fuse tool for the first time.  The card base, the layer beneath the dp, and the shaker circle frame come from Craft Smith 12x12 paper pads in Turquoise and Ocean Blues.  The sentiment comes from the Snow Cool Lawn Fawn set, and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  I made a custom mix of sequins from some blues and greens in my stash that I thought matched the papers I used.  Crystal Stickles was added to the snowballs and snowflakes on the image, and Eggbert was colored with a combination of Spectrum Noir and Prismacolor markers.
