Shaker Thank You Card

Hello Again!

I hope this posting finds you all well on this first workday of the New Year.  As promised I have decided to enter into not one but two challenges today. I have a lot of Stampin' Up! stuff so these challenges all involve mostly all their product..

One of the challenges I am entering is  The Paper Craft Crew Sketch #125- PCCCS125. The sketch immediately reminded me of a shaker card.  So used some dots for the background and glitter to shake and then adhered a Stampin' Up! Sizzix 'thank you(s)' die cut on top of the clear window. Grunge splatters seem to extend the glitter. The sentiment I thought would be perfect for my neighbor. 'Thank You & Thank you (kind doer of good deeds).

CCMC336 - Color Challenge by Create with Connie and Mary.  I just love the color palette. It reminds me of Valentines Day. However, I didn't go there! I went in an entirely different direction! And here it is!!


Thank you 
Thank You (kind doer of good deeds)

Thank you & Thank You (kind doer of good deeds)

The white die cut 'thank you' goes well with the colored dots.

Close up view to show all the dimension on this card.
I really enjoyed making this card. Together the sketch and color palette really just made the ideas flow out and onto paper.  

Here are the sets I used all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:
MANY THANKS Thank You Sizzix Sizzlits Die by Stampin' Up!

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Have a great day everyone and see you soon!!

What a fun way to say a very special Thank You!! Using the colors to make the background circles and framing it in black just make it so dramatic and impressive! Love it! Thanks for joining us for the color challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

Thank you so much Joanne for checking out both galleries! Do I have a fan? I love layering too! It is so much fun and people who don't make cards always say 'how did you do it?' HA!
