My First Slider Card

I finally decided to try my hand at a slider/spinner card.  I decided to make a card with a snowball that could go back and forth across the card.  I used Wild Card for the base, George and Basic Shapes for the snowball and the rectangles, and Winter Frolic for the snowman and title.  The snowflakes are snowflake confetti.
 I wanted it to look like the snowman was throwing a snowball.  Here are some pics where you can see it sliding.

To make the slider area, I used the Gypsy to cut a rectangle and then cut another one with a rectangle in the middle that was 1/2 an inch high and used pop dots to attach these to each other.  Next, I took 2 pennies and pop dotted them to fit in between the rectangles so it would slide.

I know I am late to the party on these, but I already have ideas to make more! :)
