I've created a Christmas Snow Globe to share with you all. The pattern for this can be purchased here from Sandra's Scrapshop if you would like to make one for yourself.

I have then fussy cut my image and created a scene using the Spruce Die from Magnolia Doohickey. Inside the globe I have added some glitter balls to shake around. My papers are from Kaisercrafts 6" Paper Pad called Christmas Collections. 

I've cut my "Merry Christmas' sentiment in gold glitter cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. To finish off I have added some Poinsettia die cuts, another Spruce die cut and a bow. 

Here's a close up of my image.
