Retro Kitty Shaker

Hi, everybody!  I mentioned in my previous blog post that lately I've been loving all things retro, so I decided to make another retro shaker card!  I used this precious kitty image that I received during the Gecko Galz Annual Blog Hop last week called Pretty Pink Christmas.  I've been inspired by Gecko Galz White Christmas Challenge as well as Beccy's Place - A Month of Holiday Cards, where I've jumped ahead to the letter "K" for kitty.

I die-cut a stitched square from an embossed holly leaf panel and adhered acetate to the reverse side to create the shaker. I adhered foam tape to the back of the panel, added some clear and irridescent sequins in various shapes and sizes, and then adhered the adorable kitty. I finished off the card with a stamped sentiment (Simon Says Stamp) in pink and three pink snowflake sequins.

I would also like to support the following challenges:
