My First Shaker Card

A friend of mine gave me some stuffing from inside a pillow. She used it for snow in a shaker card, so I thought I'd try it for myself. After making the shaker portion of my card, I needed to figure out what to do with it. I was a bit bored with my usual card layouts, so I headed off to the Splitcoast Stampers web site and looked at their Card Sketches weekly challenges. I came across challenge #110 and thought I'd give it a try.

I fell in love with the combination of colour on this card; particularly the purely pomegranate with the old olive. They are such a beautiful and rich colour combination, don't you think? I also used soft sky and textured certainly celery which, unfortuneately takes away a little bit from the rich colour, but I still love how it turned out.

So, thank you Splitcoast and thank you Melanie for your inspiration!
