Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop


Well, today's the day!
I'm thrilled to be participating in the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop!
You have until the 28th to link up your sequin shaker cards on Paulina's blog.
It's sure to be a lot of fun!
And check out these fabulous sponsors...


And, she also has a coupon, if you'd like to add some
Pretty Pink Posh sequins to your collection:


And here's the Sequin Shaker Card that I made for the hop:


I started with an aqua mist cardstock base that I ran through my diecutting machine
with my Papertrey Ink Simple Stripes IP.
I diecut my PTI Phrase Play #1 die from some My Mind's Eye patterned paper.
I trimmed a piece of white cardstock just slightly smaller than the Phrase Play die and
used my Tim Holtz blending tool to add some ink.
I also left the bottom part of the white cardstock panel white and stamped
a Wet Paint sentiment in aqua mist.
I used the "happy" rectangle to create my shaker box by filling it with some
As a finishing touch, I added a few sequins to the card front, so it looks like
they're spilling out a little.


Be sure to check out the sequin shaker cards on Paulina's blog
and to link up your own!

I'm also linking this up to the Moxie Fab World: Hip On Handwriting Challenge.


Oh, and before you go...



Thanks for looking!
