Good luck!  Ok, now onto my cards..

I made shaker cards with Paper Sweeties lovely shiny sequins(Gold), (Marshmallow), (Grape)and (Bubblegum)...love them!  As you know, I just love making shaker cards!  My two cards today are made with beautiful Christmas paper from Kaiser Craft and Sweet Cuts-Joy. Also, I made a little window using the Sweet Cuts-Square Scallop Frames on the first card.  And, finished the card with lovely (Watermelon) ribbon.  Here is my first card...


And, a view of the inside of the card...



Next up is another shaker card with a Christmas tree filled with pretty Paper Sweeties sequins...


The card is made with the same paper (Kaiser Craft) used on the first card and the die cut sentiment is from Sweet Cuts-Joy.  Gold ribbon and Nuvo gold drops added to the star and trunk to finish the card.
