Christmas in July - Sparkle

One more entry for this week's challenge at Catch the bug, today: Make it sparkle! And today it's a first time for me... for long time I wanted to do a shaker-card but never tried it before... I hope to improve, but for a first time I think is quite ok...

I colored the image with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and added some glitter. Then I cut the image, the acetate, the red cardstock with Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels two and with foami tape and more glitter I made the shaker part of the card... It was a lot of work as it was the first time doing it and I learned many things so I hope not to make the same mistakes in future as with this one, hehehe...

I used a snow dp (Oriental Trading), a Ginger's sentiment , red cardstock and nothing else as I want to be the shaker the protagonist of the card and for masculine cards we don´t need to add to many things!

I am happy that I was able to take the pictures and not have the reflex of the acetate on them :)
