Christmas Shaker Card

Brrr! It's cold outside today.  Perfect day to stay inside and craft the day away.  
This card was a request by my aunt.  She wanted a card to give to the special guy in her life.  All she told me was that he likes outdoors, birds and the Nebraska team.  After trying unsuccessfully to work all of that into one card, I finally decided to make this simple shaker card.  Hope they like it!

Card Details:
Sketch: 52 Christmas Card Challenge #4
Trees: Cottage Cutz die
Reindeer: Cottage Cutz die
Snowflake border: Magnolia Doo Hickey die
Sentiment: CTMH

Entered in the following challenges:
52 Christmas Card Challenge: Use a past sketch.  I used #4
Cuttlebug Mania: snowflake and a sentiment
Just Inspirational: Snowflakes
Perfectly Rustics: Sentiment (non birthday)
Through The Purple Haze: All About Christmas

I really like your take on the sketch and making the circle a shaker is brilliant. Love the colours you've used too. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week. Good luck with the DT Call.

I think you were set an impossible task, to combine all of those likes but this card was worth it! Love how you made the circle into a shaker element, the image and colours are great for a masculine card. I've really liked all of your DT call submissions, well done on completing them and good luck
