Whimsy Stamps November Release Hop Day 6

Happy Monday everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!
Today is day 6 of Whimsy's November Rubber Stamp and Die Release!


Before I get to my card I'd like to remind you about Whimsy's Cyber Monday Sale.
 
  Today only.
 



On Wednesday (21 November) Whimsy Stamps released this month's new rubber designs, Shapeology dies, Whimsy Designer Paper packs, Shape EZ templates and *new* Whimsy Prints pre-coloured toppers. From then until 27 November the Whimsy Stamps DT and Special Guests are showcasing these fabulous new goodies with a daily mini blog hop and I am part of today’s hop!  
 
 
 
 
Here is what I created using the Stamp Set "Snowglobe Sentiments" from Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs. 
I started out by stamping the snowglobe stamp onto white card stock and cutting it out using the matching snowglobe die. Then I stamped the snowman in the middle of the snowglobe.
I thought a silver base would look nice, so I stamped the snowglobe again onto silver card stock, and had cut the base out.
The blue paper on the top part of the card was made by using the snowflake and word stamp "let it snow" from this same set. The bottom part is from Whimsy's Michele R. designs paper "Winter blues".  I added a diecut snowflake border behind the globe.
After putting the card together, I applied crystal effects onto the snowglobe, and sprinkled some glitter onto the bottom part. Oh, and I also used an old Stampin Up stamp from "itty bitty backgrounds" to create snowflakes inside the globe.
To finish it off, I sewed around the edges, added a snowflake with a little clear button and some silver cord, and then the diecut corners with some rhinestones. 

I'm playing along in the following challenges: 

Catered Crop - silver or gold

Corrosive challenge - anything goes 

Stamptacular Sunday-  Winter Bliss

The Crafty Pad - Add some Glitter  
 
2 Sisters - Winter Wonderland

Crazy 4 Challenges  Put a bow on it
