Shaker Ornament

Hi there, welcome back!

Today while I was taking a stroll in blog land, I came across some very fun and beautiful shaker cards on this post at Lin's blog, Sending Hugs.  I was really inspired to play so I made my very first shaker card.


So what do you think?  Even though I didn't stamp any sentiment, I thinks it's pretty clear that it's Christmas card.  Inside the shaker, I have both beads and sequins.  I hope it qualifies for the
Sequin Blog Hop hosted by Paulina, owner of  Pretty Pink Posh blog.  Go check out the details and play along!


I also want to link up to TIME OUT Challenge #4 - CASE Virginia Lu With Your Own Twist.  This is Virginia's beautiful inspiration card.

and Challenge #42 - Layer Cake at ABNH - use layers or dimensions.


Stamps: Hero Arts (Magic of Christmas CL462)
Markers: Copic (YG00, YG25, B12, B14, Y15, Y17)
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), StazOn (Cotton White)
Others: Blue twine, sequins, beads

Thanks for stopping by!
