Merry Monday Challenge #205!

Welcome to a brand new challenge at Merry Monday! This was another tough one for me this week. I struggle with the theme challenges as I don't hoard my stamp sets and only have a limited amount to play with. Our challenge is to add a "snow globe" on our Christmas cards:

I ended up having to make my own snow globe. I used the Circles Framelits Dies, Window Sheets, framelits, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and two stamp sets for my card:

The front is actually two panels that close on top of each other like so:

I left the white background blank on the card base so that I can add a sentiment hidden behind the snow globe when I get ready to mail this card out. You can see a close-up of the stamped images and the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter that sits inside the snow globe:
