LOTV Vintage Shaker Christmas Carol

I was inspired to make this card after finding these ringing bells in the shops-perfect for shaker cards! I began my project by colouring the gorgeous LOTV carol singer image stamped in Memento with Sepia tone Promarkers to give a Vintage look. I then mounted them onto Bo Bunny Time piece paper which has a lovely deep red and white pattern, and chose sequins and snowflakes for my shaker pieces. I then found this gorgeous frame from The Graphics Fairy and I printed it out and cut the aperture out. I then stuck acetate in the aperture to make it my shaker frame. I highlighted the lovely holly and ivy images around the frame using glossy accents. I then added four gorgeous WOC red roses and a red bow. Next I mounted this on another piece of Time piece paper mounted onto a  shaped 8x8 card blank. I then tied the bell onto a bow of green ribbon with a gold trim and stuck it so it moves-so when you shake the card for the shaker card element, the card also rings!
I then added green and red polka dot card candy and a lovely gold star in the top corner. And some truly vintage lace I was given from my nan in the bottom left hand corner.
