Christmas Ornament Shaker Card

I love the colours that Julee chose for this month's Viva La Verve contest-and her latest cards are just gorgeous!  She inspired me to play along with both the Diva Dare and the Viva La Verve November challenges.  I decided to have a go at making a shaker card.  I was aiming to make a frosted ornament using vellum (the theme for the Diva Dare) using one of the ornaments from Verve's 'Ornamental Christmas' stamp set.  I didn't follow any specific instructions, just sort of winged it, and was happy with how it turned out.  The background and the sentiment were both created using the same stamp set.

As I was browsing some of my favourite challenge blogs, I was happy to see that my card also qualifies for The Paper Players colour challenge this week:
