Challenge : Anything Goes + a Shaker Card Tutorial

Happy Tuesday everyone.

It's time for another challenge, and this week we have a lovely easy one for you!
But before we get onto the business of the challenge, 
we have a wonderful tutorial from our resident tutorial queen, Deneen, who is showing us all about shaker cards.

So, it's over to Deneen, and I'll catch you at the end with our challenge:

Shaker Cards

Shaker cards are cards that have movement to them.  The pocket you create can hold things like beads, glitter, sequins etc. and when you shake the card they move around within the window.  

Here's a little tutorial to show you how to make one!

So we hope that you liked Deneen's tutorial, and it's inspired you to try your own shaker cards. Perhaps we'll even see some entered into our challenge for the next fortnight, which is .....

Anything Goes

Our sponsor for the challenge is :

One lucky Random winner will win 7 Digi images for their choice

We have 2 fabulous Guest Designers this week too:

using : Love Girl Cupcake from Bugaboo
