Doggone Shaker

Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by.

Today I'm playing with the Christmas Kickstart Challenge.

Here's my card.

I always check my UFO box hoping to use up some of that left behind stuff.

This time I found a badly colored image from SSS.

But this pooch didn't look too bad.  So I fussy cut him out.

I had cut the windows for something else and ended up not using them.
The piece was just sitting there and it all came together.

By the way, the Christmas Kickstart Challenge is
Dachshund Through the Snow.
Hope you'll forgive the punny title! For this challenge it's all about Christmassy canine companions, so break out any doggie stamp of your choosing and come join the fun.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Ink:   Baked Brown Sugar (SU), Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper:   Naturals White (ret. SU)

This made such a cute shaker card and love that pooch! Love the colored sequins adding festivity to your card. And there is that other fabulous embossing folder you use. That's such a beautiful and subtle texture.

Great use of that pup proudly wearing his antlers! Love the way you did the shaker with the three aperture piece! Perfect scattering of a few extra sequins over on the left side.
