Shake those Mittens! for The Cutting Cafe

It's c-c-c-cold here in Wisconsin!  -20 degrees this morning!  One must bundle up in scarves, hats, warm coats, and of course, mittens!  I've grown to love shaker cards.  The Cutting Cafe has many different options.  This one, from The Christmas Shaped Shaker Set, seems to fit our Wisconsin weather perfectly!

I used vellum on this card, thinking it looked a bit like snow.  I filled the shaker with sequins from Bella Creationz
The papers for this Mitten Shaped Shaker card are from Close To My Heart -- The Snowhaven Collection.  The snowflakes are dies from Lawn Fawn. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Check out The Cutting Cafe blog tomorrow, Jan. 7, to see the incredible inspiration from this talented team.  You won't be disappointed!  And, if you leave a comment on the blog, you could win a chance at 3 sets of your own! How fun is THAT?
Stay warm, my friends, stay warm!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
Paper Minutes -- Snowflakes
CDB#21 Craft-Dee Bowz -- Anything Goes with a Homemade Bow
D.L. Art -- Jan. Linky Party
