After I cut out my card base I stamped the front using an Inkadinkado butterfly background stamp. I was going to emboss with a white pearl embossing powder but there was Stazon ink left on the stamp and the liquid embossing dauber picked that color up. So although I had not planned to go purple purple is what I got. Which is alright because it was perfect for using the purple ribbon down the side.
If you have never made a "Shaker" card or used a "Shaker" technique on a layout I encourage you to do so. It is a fun element whether used on a card or on a scrapbook layout. Don't be afraid to try something new. Who knows you just might have a bit of fun along the way. :-) And that is what crafting is for me having fun.
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
