Keep swimming!

I decided to join in the Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge this week where the theme is shake it. This inspired me to make my first ever shaker card. In hindsight trying to create a small fishbowl shaped shaker pocket for my first attempt wasn't the best plan. After 4 attempts I got something that although not perfect at least keeps the sequins inside! I'm now coveting the WRMK fuse tool. The fish bowl set is from Simon says stamp. I'm still not happy with the overall composition of the card, but at least it's finished!


  1. Beautiful shaker card love the colours and image used.. I have now joined as a follower of you. Have a great week ahead.x

  2. I absolutely love it Cara. The fish bowl looks great. I'd never have thought you hadn't made a shaker before. Barbxx
