Happy New Year!! Welcome to the first What If? Wednesday challenge of 2017. We have a new designer and loads of new challenges this year to get you inspired, so I hope you will hop on over to The House Blog for all the details. This week's challenge is a Designer's Choice Challenge, Shirley is the Designer and her choice is Winter Cards (But Not Christmas). I've a family member who's birthday always sneaks up on me, so I decided to create a winter birthday card. I stamped the jar from Contain Yourself upside down and cut out the center to use it as a fun snow globe shaker card. I've seen this technique around and filed it away for a future time, which turned out to be now.
