Thinking of You - Shaker

It's time for another card in keeping up with the fun at The Double Trouble Card Challenge #3. This biweekly challenge begins on Monday, June 18, 2008 and ends on Sunday, July 1, 2018.

Thing 1: Trouble Maker has challenged us to take on some colors - Nutmeg, Glacier and Sorbet. It's OK to use colors close to these. (Permitted neutrals are black and white.)

Thing 2: Double Dare wants to see this card linked to Color My Heart Challenge #297.

Thing 3: Twisted Sister wants to see some "String Things".

The shaker was made by layering a die cut frame and a die cut cover-up design along with clear acetate. Foam tape was added around the framed unit and the sequins were added. This was adhered to a card base of white cardstock. Below the square shaker a panel embossed with butterflies was adhered along with a sheer brown dotted ribbon. The sentiment was stamped, punched and matted then adhered.  The butterfly was also a punch. The inside of the card was decorated with coordinating cardstock.

Hope to see you over at the Double Trouble Challenge. There is a "Bag of Things" for the winner!
