Christmas Card Using Aurora Wings "Winter Sprite" in Snow Globe with CTMH Holly Jolly Paper

Hello Friends!  How is everyone?  It is cold here in Southern CA; which is very rare.  I hope all of you are staying warm with all the snow around the US.  I have been having migraines again for the past two weeks; which is frustrating; but what can you do.  

I created this card a week ago, I think; but forgot to post it the past few days.  I created two cards with this little snow globe as a shaker card.  A friend of mine gave me the idea of the snow globe; and I loved it so I had to create this card with it.  I used CTMH Shaker Window & Confetti Dies Z4309 which is a stitched die for the outside circle; but I couldn't get it to show up on the photo. I used Aurora Wings "Winter Sprite"  inside the snow globe.  I love how it turned out.
