Hello Again,

I was asked by Retro Rubber Challenge Blog to be their guest designer this week. I could not be happier to join such talent for this week. So here is my card for today. Enjoy!

A shaker/spotlight card. I stamped the Pedddlers Pack balloon stamp two times.
Colored one image and then die cut the middle for the window. I used the small piece where the sentiment can be found and adhered it directly on the acetate- making sure it lined up with the other non-colored image.  
Guest Designer for
Retro Rubber Challenge!
Anything Goes!!

This a great example of how the images line up.
The sequins really makes this card so much fun!

The sentiment is a retired hostess set from SU called 'Happy Birthday Everyone'
This hostess set was offered in their 2015-16 Annual Catalog.
I think I joined Stampin' Up! just because of this stamp!!!
One of my birthday favs.
Challenges Entered:
AAA Cards: Game #91- 3 years!! Congratulations!!
The Paper Players: Theme Challenge #347

Wonderfully, I found out one of the Design Team members lives in the same town as myself. So we met up for some coffee (or in my case dessert coffee). What a joy to meet you Debbie and I promise we will get together again for a craft-date!! 

Well, that should do it for me!! I want to thank the gals at Retro Rubber Challenge for having me this week. It has been fun and I look forward to sharing more challenges with you. And thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

Hello, my friend!! First, this card is so incredibly cool! I love how you colored the top image and left the inside one plain. You have my mind exploding with ideas for that idea alone! There is no way the recipient wouldn't love this card celebrating their special day.

It was such a pleasure meeting you and really look forward to seeing you again to play with our craft supplies. You are so talented, Shawna! Thank you for being our guest designer at Retro Rubber. I look forward to seeing you in our gallery again soon!

Hello Shawna and thank you for being our Guest Designer for our RETRO RUBBER challenge #64 with this amazing shaker card. I love this types of cards but rarely make them, yours is simply fabulous, colorful and fun.
The balloon stamp is awesome and the sentiment fabulous, no wonder you got hooked on Stampin' Up!
Thank you for being our Guest Designer, hope you come and play again next time.

Wow, Shawna! This shaker card is incredible! Love the mix of colored image with the black and white as well as the shaker being a "frame". That you so much for sharing your talent as our guest designer this week. Hope to see you play along with us often (and keep Debbie busy with play dates, LOL!)

Wow Shawna, love the concept and do like creating shaker cards myself. Peddler's pack, I own a few of their stamps, and used to live where I could drive to the LSS. Thanks for being our GDT this week at Retro Rubber!
