Guest Designer and Shaker Card for Crafty Sprouts

Hi everyone and welcome back! I am so excited to be a guest designer for Crafty Sprouts along with the fabulous Raven from Love4Stamps! Erika has done a great makeover on her blog (previously knows as Cricut Love) and when she invited me to be a guest designer, I gladly accepted! Raven has also made a project, so be sure to visit her blog and leave her some love as well.

 I made this cute little shaker card for the Crafty Sprouts challenge.  I used KaDoodle Design Gnome Girl and colored her with my brand new promarkers! :)  I had been dying to play with them.  I love how smooth they are and the blending is very easy since I got the same colors that come in their blending sets (and then I cheated by using the chart.. hehehe).  I also used my Creative Memories custom cutting tools to get the shape of the frame, added a flower, some buttons, a little bling and used Joy's Life Wild Life Puns stamp set.  The sentiment went perfect with this digi!


Here's the a picture with the beads inside the window

Here's a close up of the colored image
This was my first time making a shaker card and I had fun doing it.  I had some challenges with it as it usually is when you try something new, but it wasn't too bad.  Hop on over to Crafty Sprouts and link up your shaker card!  Erika has a wonderful giveaway and you don't want to miss it (can you say scrap'n easel!!)  Also, if you comment on my blog as well as Raven's blog and leave a comment on Crafty Sprouts letting her know you did so, you will have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate from Peachy Keen Stamps!!!

Happy Friday everybody and God bless!
