Muse 78 - Happy Birthday!


This card makes me happy! Well, it would have to - it was inspired by our Guest Muse, Bev, the Happy Dancer herself! Here's her card for this week's Muse Challenge:




I focused on the colour scheme, the frame and the sequins. I used a PTI die for the shaker frame, Doodlebug sequins (love that in this pack you get a few of each colour and that they're already sorted!) and an MFT die for the Happy.

I hope you'll get a chance to play along! The deadline is Monday at 8 am. At that time voting will be open until Tuesday morning at 8 am. You can vote even if you didn't get a chance to play along. Voting results will be posted on Tuesday at noon.

Fantastic, Ardyth ... I never really associate shaker with CAS but you've completely nailed it ... another great idea to add to my list-of-things-to-try! Anita :)

MWAH! Nothing more to really say, Ardy, except: how do you get your sequints to keep from falling to the bottom of their little window when you stand your card up to take your beautiful photo? Hugs, Darnell
