Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Shaking it up at JUGS!



Screen Shot 2015-03-14 at 10.42.03 AMHi Friends, Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend week and Sue has challenged us, and you for that matter, to make a Shaker card.  I will admit, I think this is the second time I have ever attempted one of these types of cards, I am not sure why they intimidate me so much, because they are not that hard and so much fun to make!  I am also linking my card up to two other challenges.  The Pink Elephant; where they are asking us to use Pastel Colors, and my starting off point was a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Now head on over to Just Us Girls and play along!  While your there check out what the Design Team has done along with our Guest Designer Kathy.  Remember, if you are chosen as our Chic of the week you could be in the running as a possible GD in the future. Hope to see you there!

Few card details:  Flower stamp is from SU.  The sentiment is from Verve. I used a combo of Washi tape and ribbon underneath the sentiment. The EF is also SU. Inside the shaker I have a mixture of sequins and punched paper flowers in various colors.  Any other questions please just let me know.

I appreciate so much you coming by!  Have a great day! Nanc’
