FTH sketch #85

It's Monday, a new week, and time for a new I {heart}sketches challenge with From The Heart Stamps :)

Here's the sketch, and an optional inspirational photo too, should you wish to use it as well as the sketch and/or twist, which, this time, is to make a gate fold card, or include a window to the inside...

Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

For my card, I have used the sketch and 'sort of' a window, but it doesn't show the inside of the card, it's a window for a shaker card...

This image is Trimming The Birdhouse, and has been coloured using promarkers.
Hehe, one of those poor Birdbrains (obviously male! lol) got his foot tangled in the lights while decorating their birdhouse.
I thought it might look good to make a shaker card so that there could be falling snow around them.
I filled the shaker with Polar White flowersoft, in hindsight, it doesn't 'fall' very easily, i'd probably have done better to just add some glitter instead. Never mind, it looks ok.
My papers are both from the same pad; Dovecraft's Back To Basics Christmas (Modern)
The snowflakes are the 2 smallest dies by Clearly Besotted Stamps; Snowflake Trio Die Collection
I cut them from white card that had been covered with Stampin Up's dazzling diamonds glitter.

I'd like to enter this card at:
