Falling snow Holiday Shaker card

Happy December everyone!
What would the holidays be without a little snow? I created  an interactive holiday shaker card with a magical falling-snow effect. I got an inspiration with this picture...
Backyard
Do you think my trees resemble what Nature left in this snowfall picture? And here is my creation.....
 The background above was created with Faded Jeans, Salty ocean and Tumbled glass Distress Inks to get the night look and masking the moon. Then I hand cut a snow hill adding some texture. The winter tree is created by Dee's Distinctively IME-127 Tree Base 1 using snippets of white and dark chocolate color CS. I used my embossing pen for showing snow using Sparkly Snow Wow  Embossing powder. And the fence is created using Intricutz Die Fence from Couture Creation and cut and paste them according to my need.
This close up photo shows the  layers of snow which adds depth to the background. I added lots of sparkle and texture which is hard to see as it's difficult to get proper photos of sparkle and glitter.  I stamped the reindeer image in Black Archival ink.

 I stamped the greeting from the Big Holiday set from Inspired by stamping with Opaque White Wow Embossing powder.
 The shaker box has sequins, transparent sparkly stars and some jeweled stones from my stash. The colors coordinate perfectly with the background. I LOVE the silver snowflake metal embellishment with a big jeweled stone on my silver ribbon bow .
I framed the shaker box with a snippets of silver frame die cut out of two consecutive rectangle dies from Spellbinders Nestabilities-A2 Curved Matting Basics A.
I think this is a perfect shaker card to enjoy the season!

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:
