Winter Bunnies

This is a card I made with colors inspired by the photo over at HoC. I've been trying to make this card for quite some time, but I was lost for ideas.
I finally decided to use some scraps and make a shaker winter landscape with sequins for these two bunnies, a stamp which was in my stash unused.
I've used DPs from Authentique, and the frame is cut with a die from Marianne. The bunnies are stamped onto DP, the white lines are heat embossed. The silver star is made with a Memory Box die. The Christmas sentiment is part of a set I received as a calendar gift from my mom earlier this month.

I'd like to enter this card in these challenges:
1) House of Cards - Inspiration Photo
2) My Time to Craft - MAKE A SCENE
3) Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge -#206 Christmas
4) Daring Cardmakers - Shake It Off - Shaker Card
