Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello everyone! Today I am super excited to be participating in Taheerah Atchia's Advent Calendar Extravaganza!  I was thrilled so flattered when Taheerah asked if I would be interested in participating.  



Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

Here's todays card:

 For todays card I started with the snow globe from PTI. After cutting the base piece out of plain white card stock I went to work inking it up with a variety of distress ink colours. I then added some water droplets to give it some interest but decided I wanted some more texture, so I used a memory box stencil and some texture paste to create the snow. Once that was done I cut the Mama Elephant buildings out of black card stock and glued it onto a yellow base so to create "lights". For the front of the globe I used a combination of silver foil and silver glitter card stock.  I sandwiched the front and back together with double sided foam in between and added some chunky glitter, stars and micro beads to create the shaker element. The sentiment is from the WPlus 9  Heartfelt Holiday set, and is heat embossed with white EP on black card stock.  I always like to add little details that I think will add a little extra something to my cards and so I added some nail heads to the sentiment strip as well as the sides of the base of the snowglobe. 
The little fairy is from the Lawn Fawn "Frosty Fairy Friends" set. I coloured her in with copics and a glitter gel pen. I'm not sure if you can see it or not, but the bottom of her skirt and her ear muffs are puffy. I used a liquid appliqué pen and then used my heat gun to make it puff up.  I thought it was a fun touch. 
Once I was done with the snow globe I used a stripped embossing plate from PTI,  some soft stone card stock and a scalloped die to create the matt that I mounted the snow globe onto. I attached it all to a plain white card base and that finished my card for today. 
It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! Today’s prize is generously supplied by Lawn Fawn so you’ll definitely want to win!
