Meowy Christmas (Newton's Nook stamp)

Hi, everyone!  I enjoy playing along in Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenges!  You all know how much I love kitties, and Newton is a sweetie!  I decided to make a shaker card!  I've never made one before, but this is my second one - you'll have to wait to see my first one!  The challenge over at Newton's Nook is to "add a little sparkle" and I definitely added sparkle! This stamp is from the Newton's Holiday Mischief set - Newton is all bundled up and ready for winter!  I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils.

The Meowy Christmas sentiment is also from Newton's Holiday Mischief set and I stamped it in Brilliance Moonlight White. Inside the shaker card, the panel is embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflakes and I added lots of red, green, and silver sequins.  The circles were cut with my Nellie's Multiframe Circles dies.

At the top I added a thin strip of green cardstock, onto which I doodled stitching with a white gel marker. I added some stitched red ribbon from my stash and tied a double-looped bow.   Lastly I included a snowflake charm.

Here's the Newton's Holiday Mischief stamp set I used:
