Congratulations Shaker Card

I made it back from vacation and now need a vacation from my vacation.  LOL   I've got a lot of catching up to do.  I do want to welcome Beebeebabs as a new follower to my blog who joined while I was away. Her cards feature super fun images that are colored fabulously.

I had a lot of fun making this shaker card using the super fun Centerpieces Congratulations Die-namics from MFT. The little shaker pieces inside are mini graduation caps that come with the die. 

I posted a shaker card a couple of weeks ago but I made this one first and it was the first shaker card I ever made. I just think they are so fun and am no wondering why I shied away for so long.

I'm linking this up to the current challenge at Simon Says Stamp which is Shake It. I'm also linking it up to the current challenge at Virginia's View Challenge to use die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by and paying me a visit. I hope you have a great day.


LET'S GO SHOPPING

Way to go knocking this shaker card out of the ballpark on your first effort, Alanna. It looks fantastic. Love that the shakers are little graduation caps. The blue is so vibrant and the white just pops. Hope you get a little time to rest up after your vacation. Sure know how that goes! Hugs!

This is so fun!!! Love the blue and white!!! Wishing you well on re-entry from vacation! Even when it's an easy vacation it seems to take me awhile! It's taken me 2 weeks to get my balance back!

Oh, my! This is absolutely STUNNING! I just love the crisp white with this shade of blue and texture, but the die with the shaker styling is over the top fabulous!
