peace on earth in pastel tones

Hello my friends. It's time for another Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge.
This time our challenge is being hosted by the talented Pat K. For this challenge she chose the theme of Christmas in tones or pastels. This is what she had to say:

Hello Fussy and Fancy Friends!
I am hosting the challenge this fortnight and I have chosen a 
Christmas theme in tones or pastels!
I hope you enjoy the theme and I am looking forward to seeing all of your 
lovely creations!
Hugs, Pat K.

So I know I used this die last month but I really liked it and so made a few cards with it. It is the snowglobe thinlet by Tim Holtz. I cut the globe out of a yellow piece of DCWV card. I backed it with acetate and mounted it on foam tape.
I covered the blue card with a double sided adhesive sheet and covered it with diamond sprinkles for a bit of sparkle.

I die cut a cottage cutz bauble in antique gold card and added distress glitter to the star. I stuck it down to the mounting foam and added another layer on top. I then added sequins, iced snow and seed beads to it and stuck the blue backing down to create a shaker card.

I assembled the other piece of the globe in brown card and added stickles to it. I finished the card off by adding a sentiment from the Tim Holtz winter sentiments and a spellbinders poinsettia. The little stars are from the globe embellishments.
So now it is over to you. You have 2 weeks to enter this challenge. See you there, hugs Theresa xx.
