Freshly Made Sketches 145

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

This week at Freshly Made Sketches Narelle is our hostess.  She's been recovering from a broken elbow but even wounded she still manages to create amazing fussy cut cards.  She's truly a stamping hero!  This week she's given us a sketch that has got her signature layers!

For my part I spent way too much time fussing over this card.  I started out with a circle, but wasn't happy with it so I changed it to this awesome new tag that I recently got.  I turned the tag into a shaker and stuffed it with sequins.  And since I was using sequins, I made sure to use papers and a sentiment that would make this a Christmas card that fits the sequin challenge at Merry Monday

Our amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team have got some great cards to show you so be sure to check them out.  We hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Turning a tag into a shaker is such a "Jen" thing to do - you and your tags :) Such a great idea though and executed beautifully, as usual!
