Shake It Up!

Hello and happy Wednesday!!

I don’t know about you, but I am in love with shaker cards right now! I never really thought they were something that would interest me, but once I created one, I was addicted! There are so many fun ways to add a little shake to your card designs and this week the Wednesday challenge group is challenging us to do just that! Whether you use a pre-made shaker element or make your own from scratch, as long as it shakes, it counts! ;)

Below are three projects created by the design team, that showcase this weeks theme! You can visit the challenge blog here to get all the details and see the amazing cards and projects that the design team has created this week. If you click on each designers name, you’ll be taken directly to their blog where you’ll get more details about their project!

And don’t forget that when you enter your projects into the challenge, you can win a $50 Gift Voucher to Simon Says Stamp!
