Sunshine Shaker

Time for another game at the AAA Challenge Blog. Our theme this time is CAS  Shaker Cards (Clean & Simple Style only). 


Our sponsor for this game is Stampendous.

The first place winner will receive a prize from this wonderful company AND the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future AAA Cards Challenge.


This was one of those cards that came out completely different than the way it began. I reworked the background on this one. At first I used a white background sprayed with gold Glimmer Mist, but it did not sing loudly enough.  I keep a little box filled with watercoloring experiments, and this background panel was in there. Nothing but blue skies... it was perfect. So I de-constructed and re-constructed the card with this wonderful water color background, and voila!

The AAA DT has come up with some truly wonderful creations, so please go over the AAA Cards Challenge Blog and give them some love.  Then get to work on your own CAS Shaker card - Clean & Simple is the key!

I am linking my card to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for coming by. Hope your day is full of sunshine!

Well it looks fab with the blue background and I bet it felt good to use up your stash! Love the sun die. I only have 2 stitched dies, after seeing all the teams dies today I feel I need to make some purchases x
