Happy Holidays Shaker

I have another card for the Ellen Hutson mix it up challenge, combining Essentials by Ellen with Savvy Stamps. As I mentioned in my previous post, I have only 2 die sets by Savvy Stamps and this sentiment die had never been used before, but I thought it would be fun to use it on a shaker card. Just perfect for this fortnight's Jingle Belles challenge, where the lovely Belles are inviting us to 'Shake, Rattle & Roll'.

My card also fits the the theme of the following challenges:
CAS Mix Up - Stamping, heat embossing + sponging, die cutting
ATCAS - 88 Midnight

Distress inks: tumbled glass, broken china, stormy sky
Embossing: Versamark ink, SSS white embossing powder
Snow stamp: Merry & Bright, Essentials by Ellen
Dies: Savvy Stamps (sentiment), Home & Hearth, Essentials by Ellen, Stiched square by SSS
Snow paper by Marianne Design
Sequins: sparkling clear and winter snow mix (PPP), moonshine (SSS)

Edited to add a link to the Seasonal Scene building class by Nichol Magouirk for Altenew Academy. Even though I created my card before the start of Lesson 6 about shaker cards, it fits the theme of this lesson, so I'm hoping other students may find additional inspiration from my card.
