CYCI #138 - Shake It - Shaker Card Challenge AND Giveaway!



Happy Sunday all!
The chill is in the air - we have days of +20 followed by days of +4 and nights dipping below the zero mark already! September is my most favourite month.... it signals a huge collective "sigh" in the earth as she waits to sleep. All the dramatic color inspires me!

 Can You Case ItThis week over on the Can You Case It blog we have a shaker card challenge! Believe it or not, this girl had only attempted a shaker once before this! And I will not show you how THAT turned out! (note: I am *still* vacuuming up glitter out of the carpet in the studio!)
So this WAS a definite challenge for me! Thank goodness for Eva and her awesome "how-to" video... life saver, girl!
I spotted some inspiration on Pinterest for this card, and the fall colors had me hooked!

After the awesome hints from Eva on the easiest ways to make a shaker I went to work. And while a square is much easier (mental note for next time) I am ALWAYS up for a challenge!
Here are the details:

Stamps: (SU!) Suite Seasons (from the NEW holiday catty!)
Thoughtful Branches bundle
Ink: (SU!) Early Espresso/Cajun Craze/Old Olive/Versamark
CS: (SU!) Early Espresso/Kraft/White
Other stuff: (SU!) Bakers Twine (Bakers Twine trio pack from the holiday catty!)
(misc) sequins, beads and raffia! 

We've got some super cute shakers from the other Design Team members! You should totally check them out! And let's see what you create!
