A few days late, and a couple dollars short...

This seems to be the way I get cards done lately.  I have a great idea for a card that will fit in with a few challenges out there; I start it, but then life gets in my way, and when I come back to it, the challenges are done.  Sigh.  Well, here is the card I speak of:
This card would have been *perfect* for last week's Merry Monday, CHNC, and Winter Wonderland challenges.  In order, they wanted snow globes, pink, and snowmen.  See, PERFECT!  If you are thinking the image looks funny, it's because it's adhered to the inside of the card:
Here's a closer look at the Stamp Fairy image:
I used a Project Life Fuse pocket to contain my shaker materials.  I did not choose to invest in the Fuse tool, though, I just taped the ends shut. 
Well, let's see what challenges I can find to add this to:
The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up #17:  Non-traditional Christmas colors
The Glory of Christmas #85:  Home of Jesus' birth or anything goes
Sparkles Christmas #64:  Christmas Cuties
CHNC #282:  Cute or anything goes Christmas
Winter Wonderland:  Non-traditional Christmas colors
52 Christmas Card Throwdown  May Theme:  Little Christmas critters
Snowflakes Promise #22:  Anything goes
Crimbo Crackers #107:  Anything goes
Christmas Card challenges #25:  Anything goes or optional inspiration photo
CHN Patterned Paper:  Anything goes
Crafting for all Seasons #126:  Add some embossing (my sentiment is heat embossed)
Fussy and Fancy #164:  Dies or punches (Spellbinder circle and hexagon dies)
CRAFT #364:  Christmas
Craft your Passion #313: Anything goes
I think I found some...LOL  Thanks for stopping by, and God bless you!
ETA:  This card made TOP 3 at Christmas Card Challenges #25, and also The Glory of Christmas #85!   Thanks!!  :)
