The challenge is always "Anything Goes" but you do have a little twist you may wish to participate in. The extra twist this month is "Twinkle".
I decided that "twinkle" to me - meant the twinkle in Santa's eye.
This cute Santa stamp is from Whipper Snapper Stamps. I believe I water colored him and then used colored pencils to add some depth to the color. I then fussy cut him out.
Santa is peeking out from behind the window so I decided to make a shaker card. I die cut the green frame, glued on an acetate sheet and added a double layer of foam tape to the frame. I made a red mat for the shaker element to be on. A light shade of coordinating blue/green paper was added for the background for the frame. I added different things from my blingy stuff to fill the shaker. I have bought a couple bags of clear things that make great fillers with the specific things you want in the shaker. I used a few red sequins. I don't have a package of red sequins - I had to dig these out of a mix. I added some snowflake sequins and several sizes of clear sequins. I then very carefully adhered the shaker element to the red mat.
I used several different patterned papers to cover my card base. I stamped a small sentiment, fussy cut it and adhered it to the acetate.
Here is a close up of the shaker element.
