Hello Friends!!! It's Crazy 4 Challenges time again and this week Cindy came up with a challenging challenge! LOL! Boy Cindy is coming with some great challenges this month. . .it's the outside of the box type of challenges and I'm lovin' it! This week's challenge is to create a shaker card! Wow, I haven't created a shaker card in over a year or maybe 2. Hope you'll play along with us this week. If you've never created a shaker card. . . .here is a link to the Splitcoast tutorial that you can use.

Okay. . .I'm going shabby chic again. I'm really having fun making this style of cards because I get to use materials that I didn't use often in the past and well, they were gathering dust from neglect.
Flowers . . .yeah, I have a lot of them. . .might as well use them. If I don't use them, I can't buy more of them because it would be rather silly to continue to buy them if I don't use them. My Prima flowers have been receiving a lot of love lately. Of course, I added lace to my card. . . .I'm in love with them!
To create the shaker part of my card, I used my Nestabilites die. . .stamped the bird image using my Unity Stamp and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then embellished the shaker with pearl beads and seam binding bow.
Yeah, it's my crochet flower again! Because I've been selling on Etsy. . .one of the items I've been selling are my crochet flowers . . .I make some to sell, then I keep some for my self. I topped the crochet flower with a satin cabbage style rose. I added it to the seam binding bow dyed in pink. That's basically it!
Hope y'all have a wonderful Saturday!!!
