Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC62

Happy Tuesday!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge- FTTC62 !!! This week Dee is our challenge host!!! Dee is shaking things up a bit....or, better yet, she is challenging us to shake things up!!! We are making *Shaker Cards*!!! Now, you can have a big shake or a little shake. You decide if your shaker is the focal point or the accent. We would love to see what you create!!! So, go get busy and "shake it" with us this week! Here is a wonderful shaker card tutorial at SCS by Beate Johns to get you going!

Here is how I *shook* it up......I created a Gift Set.






I used the beautiful *Crocus* image from the  A Year In Flowers I Set. The sentiment inside the card is from the Tag Lines Set. The flower image was inked with the Hollyhock & Holly Collection plus R000, R35 Markers.

The *shaker windows* were created with the Label I Spellbinder Dies. I added a fitted sheet of the Clear Cardstock in between and then filled it with some Gold Micro Beads. I added some piercing around the window and added some Gold Pearls for decoration.

My background on both projects were embossed with the Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug Folder. I added a MS Flower Border Punch to the card and decorated it with some more Gold Pearls. The Gift Box is from this Slip Cover Template. I finished the card and the box off with some Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon. 

Now it's time to check out Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's take on the Challenge!!!

Thank you for stopping by today...I hope you like this idea!?!
