Let it snow

Hi everyone!
Today starts a new challenge at the Day of the Month Card Club
This month we are celebrating 

 Snow Globe Day
Tag der Schneekugel

I recycled a used up roll of adhesive tape to make this snow globe.
 I covered the outside of the roll with washi tape and glued it to a light blue die-cut circle.  I then glued a second circle behind the blue one, adding the back of the base and an eyelet for hanging the ball in between.
To add depth to the wintry scene, I used several layers of self-adhesive foam pads to distance the punched fir trees from each other. - There was enough space for this, as the width of the roll is about 2 cm.
I glued a few die-cut stars in the background and added dots with a white Posca pen. Scattered artificial snow in the ball and closed it with a circle punched out of acetate and a paper ring also punched out. 
I attached the second part of the base and decorated it with a narrow self-adhesive silver chain.  
Finally, I added the snowman, the snowflake and the embossed sentiment. Attached a small ribbon to the hanger.

Hope you like it :)

Have Fun!!
