October Rudolph Days

Hi everyone.  Playing along with Rudolph Days. The challenge runs from the 25th to the end of the month.

I used a new-to-me die set of ornaments (gifted from a sweet friend) to create a shaker card.  I've not had a lot of success with making shaker cards, but this worked out really well for me.

Here's a close-up.

I was on a roll ... so here's another version ...

It's a great way to use some of my thousands of sequins. :)  I'll be making more of these!


Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
