my first shaker card. . . .

in about 15 years!


I remember doing lots of them at the time and haven't been inspired to do any currently.  However, I needed a congratulations card for a friend and this just kinda' happened.  :*)  Sorry for the poor photo; I was in a hurry to get it in the envelope.  The peekaboo circle is from MFT and the sentiment is from Wplus9.  I used tiny seed beads and vintage sequins I had on hand.  The patterned paper is from an old 6 x 6 pad from MME. 

Sending this to Word Art Wednesday's anything goes challenge.

Have a good weekend.

I wasn't that keen on shaker's initially either, but they kinda grew on me too, now I'm addicted lol. I'll bet your friend will adore it as much as I do!
