Bright and Sparkly Christmas Shaker Card for Simply Cards & Paper Craft Magazine

 Tomorrow is the deadline to enter….eeek!!! Do you ever just want to jump in, and give a challenge a try, then hold your breath hoping it all works? LOL This is what sometimes happens in crafting, but even still, I give it my all, because crafting is an opportunity for self-expression, and to push yourself to try, even when you feel unsure of the results. I am entering this Bright and Sparkly Shaker Christmas Card into the Challenge for Simply Cards and Paper Craft Magazine. It is, after all, one of the best places to look for inspiration for new card styles. I’ve shared my process, and a few tips I’ve learned along the way. I enjoyed using some of my favorite products on this card, and hope you like it too! 

Be inspired, Be Blessed~Raquel
