Shake, Shake, Shake!

Well, thanks to the current challenge over at Tiddly Inks, I have accomplished another first...my first shaker card!  Yay!  =)  A friend's birthday is coming up, so I thought this was the perfect time to make her a card.  I also used a sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog.

This is the Papertake sketch...


..and here is my card!


This card was created using an image from Tiddly Inks (isn't she fabulous?!), posted in frames created by Nestabilities and my **brand new** Big Shot!  (That's another first!)

Here's a close-up of my shaker.  Inside I have some pink beads and some light pink, dark pink and crystal acrylic gems. (Sorry for the shadow in the corner...apparently my picture-taking abilities are a bit lacking this week. LOL)



This card is being entered in the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks #39: Teach Me Shaker Card
Papertake Weekly Sketch #53
Doodle Pantry #8: Sparkle and Bling
Southern Girls Challenge #13: Brads, Gems or Dewdrops 
Do You Stack Up #8: Anything Goes
Digi Doodle Shop's Best #48: Spots/Dots

Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope you enjoyed it!  =)

This card is so much fun, Star. I love shaker cards and I really like that you put in a mix of beads and bling, rather than just one or the other. Great color combination, too.

Starla!! Amazing job!! Don't you LOVE the Nesties?? I've recently gotten addicted as well! I have a Cricut so I put off the Big Shot for a long time but sometimes it's so much easier to rock one cut out with the Big Shot rather than get my Cricut all set up! I love the colors you chose, your shaker simply rocks!! Gorgeous coloring as well!!

Thanks for joining us this week at TI!!

Hugs!
