My 1st Shaker Card

Hello peeps a quickie post from me I've been busy making DT cards today & last night but though today I would take a little break & make a quickie card.
I've done a Shaker Card, I've not made 1 before but I have been seeing them around Blogland & love the look of them so thought why not try it...........I like to try different things.
So here it is......
Its a Mo Manning image which you can get here I cant remember the name of it I brought it ages ago but then my hard-drive broke so I lost all of my images fortunately for me I have a few images printed out here & there so coloured this 1 in......will have to go over & buy it again tho but I do not have the name of the image. She is sooo cute tho isn't she?

She is coloured with Promarkers & all the white on her coat, boots & earmuffs is covered with Diamond Stickles. The plastic-ky-thingy (not sure of the name lol) I brought a couple of months ago from my local craft shop here. The doily in the background I coloured green with a Promarker. Inside the plastic I put a mixture of Diamond Dust & glitter from my stash which I cant remember the name of & it got transferred to a tub & I threw away the packaging....ooops!!

All the flowers have a sprinkling of Diamond Dust on. The large white is a Large Curly Mulberry flower from Emma's & the large green & 2 small green & cream 1s are from Wild Orchid, others are from my stash.
This is shaken to show the effect which is supposed to look like snow, sparkly snow lol & because of the diamond dust it gives a nice sound when shaken.
Papers are K&Co
Large white flower - Crafty Emma's
Green flowers - Wild Orchid
Diamond Dust - Hobby House
Sentiment - Sentiments 4 You

I'm entering this card into Mo's Challenge Blog which is a sketch, its the 1st time I've entered there so I hope its ok, I might have a quick peeksie see what other challenges it may fit then get more crafting done....of course lol. Will be back later to catch up on some blogging.
Hope you like my shaker card would love to know what you think whether its good or bad I appreciate every 1 of your comments.
Thank you for stopping by I will pop kettle on next time & hand out the bickies lol.
Bye-D-Bye for now
Hugs Vicky xxx

EDITED TO ADD.... A fabulous follower has kindly pointed out that this image is NOT from Mo's but is indeed from Karen's Doodles so I've been over to find the image & update my blog. It is called 'First Taste Of Snow' & thankyou soooo much Elaine I like to give credit where credit is due. Sorry every1 its no wonder I couldn't find it on Mo's lmao. xx

Hi Vicky, love your shaker card. Can't get those plastic 'thingies' at least I've never seen them over here (Netherlands). I should keep an eye out for plastic wrappings that I might use...

Hi, Vicky! This is a very cute card, but I'm afraid the image is not one of Mo's. I'm pretty sure it's from Karen's Doodles, as it looks very much like her style.
As far as the lost images go, I'd contact the artists to see if they could replace the ones you lost. I think most of them keep records of past sales.
