The Crazies are Shakin' Things Up!!!

Cindy, our July hostess for the Crazy4Challenges Team, once again has us doing a different style of card.  This time our challenge is to make a shaker card.  My mind immediately went to the beach and sand, so sand is what my card is shaking up.  For my shell image and sentiment, I used a set by Mark's Finest Papers.  I added some border punch work and some Prima flowers along with some MS punched branches.

I am also entering this into the Speedy's Friends Challenge which was to have three hearts on your card.  Well, with my border I have many more than three hearts.

To see the other shaker cards created by the Crazies, be sure to visit the team blog.  We would LOVE for you to play along with us.

That sentiment is so true! That's the only thing I miss about Florida is the ocean! Your card is outstanding. Love the background, those beautiful flowers and the shaker tech. (Something I have never tried!) Beautiful, beautiful!
Sorry I have been missing, sometimes life gets a little rough! Hopefully I will do better! Hugs!
