Prettie Wednesday


Two weeks ago, Christie challenged us to make a shaker card. It has been a LONG time since I've made a shaker card. I decided to use the Serenity Now set from My Favorite Things. I had these flower embellishments that I picked up in the Target dollar bin and never used them. I thought they'd be fun to put in the shaker with a little glitter. I stamped the image on white cardstock and carefully cut around the top part of the image with my craft knife. The image is colored with Regal Rose and Certainly Celery markers. Be sure and check out the other Pretties Girl blogs to see what they came up with for the challenge! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Serenity Now (MFT); Ink- Palette Noir; Paper- Certainly Celery, Regal Rose (SU), white cardstock (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- slit punch, flower embellishments, foam tape, glitter, horizontal slot punch, polka dot organdy ribbon (May Arts), Regal Rose and Certainly Celery markers (SU), paper piercer, white gel pen.
