A Baby Is Born

Good Morning lovely blogger, I have  card to share today!
The current challenge theme over at The Crafting Cafe is 
Interpret as you will, create a project & link it up so we can all 
come over to visit your blog & Oooh & Ahh over it! lol
Here's my creation!

I've made a little shaker Christmas card.
The image is AKV Nativity Baby Jesus from our sponsor 
The base card is 5"x5" Kraft & the papers are from my stash!
I've had them for ages but don't know who they are by as they came in a goodie box 
as far as I can recall! I added some good old Peel Off borders which are 
actually the waste from between bubble border strips. The little dots are
also waste from the middle of the bubbles.

Sorry about the photos but it was really windy outside where
I normally take my pics & the card almost blew away several times.
It has gotten so shaken up that the glitter has gone a bit static
& is clinging on to the acetate! lol.
There is actually a little silver fibre bow at the bottom of the shaker
window but I'm not sure you can make it out in the photo! lol
Thanks for popping by! I do hope you can play in the challenge!
