Shaker Card (1 Background - 2 CAS Cards)

Hello again!

Please hop over HERE to see my first card I made with the same background, but added a different fun element to it ;)

The background I use for this card is the same Tie Dye one used on the first card.. I'll show you the photos here too...

The tie dye background... This is after I played with it a bit (dry embossed, triple heat embossed, added an ultra-fine glitter...) all details are in the first post...

This time I cut a white card to the size of the tie dye background piece, rounded the corners, cut out the inner part, added my equally large acetate sheet and created my shaker element adding my pretty mixed pink sequins. The card base corners were rounded and my sentiment stamped. Here's the card...

Pretty, right? What's really cool about this card is the fact that you can also choose to flip it and use the design like this...

Fun, right?

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Blog - Anything Goes
City Crafter Challenge Blog - Shake It Up!
Adicted to CAS - #45, Geometrics
"Less Is More" - #186, Sketch

Thank you for stopping by again! I will be back soon with something more artsy next time so stay tuned ;)

I would also like to thank all who congratulated me on my wins as well as those who always take time to visit my blog and leave a sweet comment, it's so nice to know that you care. Your support keeps me going so THANK YOU! xxx

Have a great day! Best wishes,
