Wishing Joy

I am please to announce that I have been chosen for the design team at
Scrap From Your Heart. 

This is a monthly challenge and this month the theme is to use DIES !! 

For my card I used the new die and stamp set from My Favorite Things .. JOY.  I also used the circle and frame shaker die from MFT.

I started with white cs and I smudged various distress and oxide inks in Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves. I then added white acrylic paint splatters on top of the ink.
With the die set I double cut the JOY out of dark purple cs as well as the frame for the shaker. I stacked the letters to give them height on the card.   I then cut the circle in the center of the white inked front panel.  I inserted the shaker piece and added purple and lavender sequin pieces.  I then backed that with a different shade of purple cs.
Using the coordinating stamp set I stamped the sentiment on the same color cs that I used to back the cut circle with Seedless Preserved distress ink and then trimmed it down and cut the flag ends.
I wrapped white satin ribbon around the bottom and scattered some lavender and white sequins .  All of this was added  to a dark purple side fold base.

I hope you have fun playing along with us.  I wish you luck in the challenge.

Super way to use this new die and such a creative way to make it a shaker. Love your use of non temporary colours for a Xmas card and fun arty look with the background. Thanks for joining Ink x

Congratulations on being chosen for the design team. Love the card. It's a shaker and they're so much fun. What a clever idea to make the middle letter of JOY the shaker. Thanks so much for joining us for the HLS October Christmas Challenge.
