A Shaker Card

Hello, good morning, I have a Wedding Card today and it's my DT Card for today's Stamp Fairy Challenge. Yes, as from this week I am on the Monday Team and so I'll be having some fun with the Challenges now. ... .. and wow did I start with a big challenge.. we had to do a SHAKER CARD today .. and it's the first time I am trying one of these cards!! .. .but so easy to do.. and then the shaking part is so fun ha ha  :) .. you really have to have a go with these.

If you've never tried one, Netty has made a fab tutorial for us, it's here if you'd like to have a go.

For my card I decided to use Lenny & Linda Wedding again.. but this time decided to colour them lighter for a change. For the background I used my Papermania swirly and flower stamp and I did the sentiment myself. 

Here is a close up of the shaking part ... I filled it up with lots of punched little papers which I was collecting from all the punching I do ha ha..

Really hope you will come and join us for our Shaker Card challenge... go have a look at what my other teamies did for lots more inspiration... and remember to use a Stamp Fairy stamp.

I am entering my card in these challenges today.
