Shake it off!

Here we are again with a new challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond.  These challenges do seem to come around quickly. I didn't mind this one though as I quite enjoy making the odd Shaker Card.  That, and I needed a golden wedding anniversary card.  I kept my shaker card very simple, cutting a heart from some cream and gold paper and printing the names of the recipients onto acetate.  I then filled the hole with gold hearts and 50s and stuck it onto a card.  Simples.  

The hardest part was making sure all the 50s were the right way around.  The DT have been really inventive with this challenge so please pop over for a look and join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.
