Challenge #76 - Shakers

Hello everyone!  It's Cristine with my very first challenge for the Paper Girls Challenge!  I wanted to do something fun so this challenge's theme is Shakers.  Shakers aren't just for cards.  They have been used in layouts and in Project Life spreads as well.  New to the shaker world?  Click on my picture to see a quick step by step tutorial on how to make one!  No sequins?  Use die cuts or coarse glitter instead!  Now go have some fun!!

I've had the K&Co mason jar die cut forever and didn't know what to do with it until now.  I've recently started sewing so tried the shaker pocket with some clear packaging.
Pebbles basics card base, MME doily sticker, Fancy Pants sentiment sticker,  random micro and seed beads, ribbon, and  sequins from stash, glittered up a bit with Stickles.

I used a pre made frame from my stash and filled it with sequins to make my shaker card.

I created a shaker effect in my pocket scrapbooking. I had a few various trinkets I wanted to add including cork die cuts, fabric stars and sequins.

I used circle dies to make balloons and filled them with several types of pink and white glitter.

The winner of Challenge #75 - Marsala is:
1.  Hazel
