Freshly Made Sketches 411

Hi all!  Wednesday means a new challenge from your friends at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is Jen Brum and I loved her sketch so much I managed to make two cards!

It's been a while since I've made a shaker card and that big rectangular layer on the sketch gave me the idea to make one.  I squared up the card so that the proportion of my snowflake square was just right a-la the sketch and I filled my shaker pocket with sequins in the colors of the season.

This is the second card that I made for this sketch.  I first made one a few days ago and it's a perfectly fine card - just not terribly exciting.  So back to the drawing board I went which lead me to this snowflake cutout which led me to this shaker design.  Here's card #1.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please check out the inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches design team and be inspired to join us!
