Wedding Shaker Card

This is my second post for today.  When I read the Pretty Pink Posh Blog today and saw the sequin shaker cards, I just knew I had to play.  (Plus, the need to enter the challenge was a great excuse for me to procrastinate some work-related tasks I need to spend time on this weekend!)

I was especially inspired by Julie Ebersol and Maureen P.'s shaker cards.  I loved the simplicity and the clean and simple look of their work.  Mine is less CAS, but still keeps the clean lines of their cards.   I knew the shaker card idea would be great for a co-worker's wedding card.  Her colors are coral and gray.  I also used this necklace from this week's Inspiration Challenge #438 at Splitcoast Stampers.

WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamp set and matching dies are featured in the card.
