Challenge #135 over at THE CRAFTY PAD this week is to make a shaker card. I've not made one of these for years I don't think, so I quite enjoyed making it for a change. As always the DT used Debbie's images from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS and I used Butterfly and Verse. We're sponsored this week by JOANNA SHEEN who has a £10 voucher as the prize for the winner.

Oh yeah, we've got a DT call out too if you're interested.

My papers and plain purple card have been hanging about in my stash for eons and then I just used my M.S. punch and that's pretty much it, lol. I wanted to keep it simple though and let the verse take centre stage. I cut the frame with nesties Labels 2.

Entering into:
ALLSORTS #117 - You've been framed.
DESIGNED 2 DELIGHT - Anything goes.
SEND A SMILE FOR KIDS - Punches & diecuts.
SIMPLY STAMPIN' #21 - Punch it up.
CRAFTY ANNE'S #47 - Scallops and/or fancy borders.
