I'm in this months Cardmaking and Papercraft!

Good afternoon everyone! Just popped on to show you the card I made for the little piece in Cardmaking and Papercraft this month! I think its page 66, they asked my trends for my Christmas crafting 2011 and what my predictions were for the trends in 2012.
For this project I used a Lili of the Valley image stamped in Memento and coloured in Sepia tones with Promarkers, I used My Minds Eye and Bo Bunny papers, Acetate, Tonic punches, A ringing bell, Ribbon, Kraft, distressing inks and glitter card.
I started by making the shaker element by cutting a frame out of the newspaper look bo bunny papers and mounting the LOTV image on the inside panel. I then added punched out glitter card snowflakes in complimenting colours to the MME papers. I added Acetate inside the frame then placed it over the foam pads I used to create my shaker space.
I matted the card with Kraft, then added the MME papers which I distressed along the edges with scissors and distress inks. I placed the shaker element in the centre and added a ringing bell tied onto complimenting ribbon so when you shake the shaker element it rings! Lastly I added some punched snowflakes onto the bottom panel of MME papers.
