Glitter n Sparkle DT - Anything but a Card

Hello, everyone!  It's Sunday, so that means we have a new challenge for you over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week our challenge is Anything But a Card.  Well since I usually only make cards, this was a challenge for me!  I decided to make a shaker tag - first time I've made one of these!  I chose this adorable image called Kitty w Ornament from one of our generous sponsors, Limited Runs. I coloured it with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.


I die cut two patterned papers from BoBunny's Rejoice Collection (leftover snippets) with MFT Die-Namics Stitched Traditional Tags.  I used Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles to make the shaker frame.  Inside the shaker I added red and green sequins and tiny silver and gold star sequins. On the front I affixed the kitty image along with three red felt stars - I received these in a RAK from my lovely friend Monika - thank you, Monika!  I added a die-cut circle to the top of the tag (Nellie's Multiframe Circles) so I could tie some red ribbon and white eyelash ribbon.

My shaker tag was inspired by Scrap it with a Song's April challenge, where Taylor Swift's Shake it Off is the pop song.  I was inspired by the title!

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Anything but a Card challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week!
