Since launching my line of sequin embellishment mixes in January of this year, I have been humbled by the support I've received from the crafting community and fans of my blends! 
To show my appreciation, I will be sponsoring a Grand Prize and Second prize, as well as individual prizes on each leg of the Hop! Be sure to leave your comments by Monday April 16th, 11:59PM EST to be elligible to win!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I created a simple frame shaker card with my new Intergalactic Sparkle Blend.




I also used an old star banner cover plate die from my stash (I don't know the brand) and a sheet of space themed DCWV 4x6 cardstock, also from my stash, as the background.


I cut the cover plate from light gold Neenah shimmer cardstock and cut strips of black DCWV glitter paper to box in the frame. I also used a yellow Sakura glaze pen to add a little color and dimension to the stars before backing the panel with clear acetate.



I doubled up 3M foam tape to create my shaker box and adhered a 4x5.25 panel of the patterned paper to an A2 white note card. I placed a generous amount of Intergalactic Sparkle Blends in the center of the panel, before adhering my shaker panel, centered on the card base. I stamped a sentiment from the MFT Stamps Space Explorer stamp set onto a white banner and adhered it with glue dots to the bottom right of the panel. As a final touch, I added some Dovecraft glitter enamel dots from the Berry  Blush collection to two of the corners.
