Elephant Shaker Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly McKown-Santi 
our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

This week Kelly has given us a Tic Tac Toe Challenge ... using the Tic Tac Toe board below select three items in a row either vertically, horizontally or diagonally.

For my card today I decided to select the left hand vertical column which was 'Add a Sentiment'; 'Shaker Card' and 'Sequins'.

For the frame for the shaker card I used Mama Elephant's Framed Tags Hug It Out die set. I die cut the large frame and then inked the frame and the inner rectangle using Wilted Violet Distress Oxides blending from the top and going lighter as I got closer to the bottom.

To decorate the card I used the Mama Elephant's Fly with Me Clear stamp set. 

The sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs Sentiments 1 - Celebration Clear Stamp set with coordinating dies.

Here is another look at my shaker card after I had shaken the card and placed it on my desk. As you can see my shaker card is filled with various purple and pink colored sequins another item on the Tic Tac Toe board.

For the inside of my card I die cut another frame again and used the inner panel. I sponged on the color and then added the elephant image and another sentiment.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
