From The Heart February Progressive Monthly Challenge

My card today is for From The Heart's progressive monthly challenge.  The image is called Snowman and Cocoa and comes with 6 sentiments.  If you did not participate in last months challenge, you can purchase this image for $1.00 OR received it FREE with a $10 purchase and the code HOT-COCOAThe layout is for From The Heart Sketch #140.  As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to make it a shaker card ( my FAVORITE!).  I colored her with copics, cut her out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die, mixture of fun flock/flower soft for the fur on her hat, stardust stickles on the snowflakes, and glossy accents for the cocoa and eyes.  DP from The Paper Studio Christmas Basics 6x6 pack and green cs from my stash.  I cut out the frames for shakers on my Cameo and filled them with glitter from Recollections Christmas set, red and green sequins from my stash, and the negative from a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch in red glitter paper from The Paper Studio.
