So much to do, so little time! I know I'm not the only one saying this (over and over) at this time of the year but it's a fact. But I love the hustle and bustle and wouldn't change a thing. I've managed to make and mail out all of my Christmas cards (yay), thanks to making them throughout the year. And I took a little bit of time for myself yesterday to make this card which I'm posting in two challenges.
Over at CAS(E) This Sketch #102, Gayatri Murali provided this week's sketch ...
and I'm also entering into the challenge over at Merry Monday #138, where this week's assignment is to make a Christmas card using gold, silver, white and one other colour of your choice (I chose Enchanted Evening from PTI).
My card ...
A shaker card that should have been very easy to make because I wasn't dealing with a fiddly narrow frame, except that I forgot to put in an acetate window on my first attempt (duh!) and made a total mess when I shook it to see how the sequins and glitter looked all mixed up together :).
