My first shaker card!

This week's challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog was to make a shaker card... another first for me!  Unfortunately on the day I went down to our little village craft shop to see what I could find to put inside the card the whole town was on strike (only in Greece)!  So I had to make do with some seed beads that I had on hand.  They actually turned out to be okay though as they do make quite a satisfying rattle.













































































The image is called Donna's Adventure from Tiddly Inks and the papers are from October Afternoon and Bo Bunny.  The ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  I used copics to colour the image (see below).




















It is a horrible windy grey day here... I hope it's nicer where you are.

That's funny. When I first looked at the card I had no idea what part would be 'shakin'. Now I see. Wow, that's an intriguing idea!

That's okay BB... I was wondering why the card need a religious theme i.e. Shakers... took me a while... my excuse??? It's early in the morning and I need another cup of coffee.

Love the card Arabella. Wonder if you could find some tiny little pebbles on that beach of yours... would they 'shake' sufficiently? Or little shells?

You could do a beach theme :)
