PWC242 Love You!

Hi all!  A late weekend post today.  I was able to spend a chunk of time in my room today and complete yet another card for a Paper Pretties challenge.  The challenge this week was to try a new technique.  Now, it is hard to believe that I have never made a shaker card, but it’s the truth.  I’ve tried and not succeeded.  Last fall, at a shoebox swap I attended, I received a door prize of IO shaker pouches and fun confetti.  So I thought now would be a great chance to give it a try again.

Last week I had stamped a few Sophia images and among them was Always in my Heart Sophia.  I colored her up — having Rainbow Bright & Punky Brewster in my head as a color palette — it’s the tights, I tell ya!  I matched it up with Basic Grey Sugar Rush , which is one of the few paper packs I’ve come close to using up.  
I must admit, the shaker card was still a bit of an issue for me.  The shaker pouch is fantastic.  What I had an issue with the Nestie ring around it.  I have the heart circles and intended to use those.  The largest one fit perfectly.  However, when I went to cut out the inside of it with another circle Nestie, it didn’t come out nicely.  One side of the border was fine and the other was too short/close.  Spellbinders was not getting any kudos from me at that moment.  I couldn’t understand how using the same company’s products wouldn’t net me a good result.  So I had to ditch the heart circle and use a regular scalloped Nestie.

Here is a shot of the card — all shook up!  It’s quite cute!  The layout I used is from the Sweet Sketch this week.  I changed the middle panel to a circle instead of a square.
