Teal Shaker Card

Hello Readers,

I am writing on behalf of Make My Monday Challenge Blog this evening. Their challenge this week is inspired by one of our team members favorite crafting elements; Teal, sequins, and twine.. Oh man, sequins and twine... Umm. I would have never put these two together but wow it worked out beautifully! Here is my card for tonight..

This card shows all the elements for our challenge this week. Interesting combination that made for a great card! I used the complimentary rust color on the edges of the card to frame the teal ornaments. I also did the same behind the shaker element of the card featuring rusty luster CS.

I do hope you join us for the challenge this week.. I am looking forward to see what you come with all these bits and pieces in mind. 
Challenge for this week at Make My Monday
You can see the shaker sequins, glitter, and the luster of the CS
 through the detailed die cut ornament. 
Cross pollinating two colors on different elements such as these ornaments
 prove to make for a cohesive design

Well here is a sobering thought... Only two months till Christmas!! Yikes!! However, I am sure we are set ready to go for this season of giving! Not me, no way Ho-say!


But here we are, and well, I am kind of excited for Christmas this year.. My children are 8 and 10 and the magic of Christmas is still very much alive. However I know my days are numbered, so I better enjoy it while it still lasts..
My ten year old already knows about Santa but she wants to believe. I guess I should take her lead because Christmas can be magical for those who do and/or want to believe.

There is still plenty of time my friends. Just breathe and lets make a card to calm down.. And for those of you who don't make cards, well.... I'm not sure.. LOL!!

That should be it for me!! I hope you all enjoyed your visit and I would enjoy to hearing your comments. Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you can join me again.

All the best,
Shawna

This is beautiful - I love the colour combo you've used. Great minds think alike on the shaker. My youngest child is 8 and my oldest grandchild is 10...the 10 year old seems to truly still believe , but I get the impression my 8 year old is trying to make me believe he believes so the presents don't get withdrawn!
