A bingo challenge at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, today's card is my DT card for Crafty Ann's Challenge where Crafty Ann has a Christmas bingo challenge for us. I love bingo challenges and my line is 'Glitter, snow and Red' so pop on over to the challenge blog and find out more about the challenge and of course the fab prize too!

I've made a shaker card using one of Crafty Ann's precoloured Snowmen Snowglobes and one of the Gold Frames from the Metallics collection. The frame is gorgeous in real life but hasn't show up too well in the photo. I've cut the centre of the frame out and lined it with acetate and layered it up on some ivory sparkly card.  I've added some snowy glitter for the shaker element. To finish off I've added some gold net ribbon, a bow, some Marianne die cut snowflakes  and one of Crafty Ann's Christmas sentiment tickets. You can find all Crafty Ann's goodies in her shop here

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Boots: anything goes (you really need to try the Deluxe printers card from Crafty Boots, 
its fab-u-lous for printing and also with promarkers too)
Dream Valley:  Sparkle
Ooh La La: Lots of sparkle
Paper Sundaes: Winter wonderland
Ribbon Reel: anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

I'd better go and get myself ready for work, I've got loads to do i've got next week off yippppeeeeeee! We've been so busy its my first week off for 8 months and I can't wait to laze around, do lots of crafting and catch up on some blog hopping as I haven't had a lot of time for visiting lately
Thanks for calling by today
Claire xx
