It's a Shaker (City Crafter 257)

Hello everyone

Today is the second week of Birthday celebrations at City Crafter 
This week Kirsty has created a card for us to CASE or to use as inspiration
(You can pick any element of Kirsty's card ... the sketch, the colours etc., and create your version to enter the challenge and be eligible to win her prize)

This is Kirsty's card


...and here is the prize she is offering to the winner


I used the same frame die to make a 3D shaker card


I used paints and sprays to cover my CS first and encased the butterfly and word inside the shaker


It's pretty hard to show that in photos


Our GD this week is the very talented Goga - Winner of week 248 - here's a link to her blog

Be sure to visit City Crafter and check out all the creations by the team

I would also like to enter my card at the JUGS challenge this week where the trend is 
Shaker Cards and the DT have some terrific examples


Wishing you all a wonderful day

Very pretty..and you know how I LOVE shaker cards!! How clever to add the word inside, too...I really like that idea!! I have been so behind in everything...our outside weather is finally so I can work outside...I spent 5 hours in the big gardens on Sunday and am headed out again this afternoon...my Spring flowers are starting to bloom and I can enjoy them while I am working!

Always love seeing your shaker cards Ros, for they are always so playful. Love the addition of thread here, too and the tiny wooden embellies!

Don't think I've ever seen anyone put a butterfly in their shaker card. That's fun! Love all the shimmer and shine from your paints and sprays. :-)
