Dance like no one is watching for LTSCB "Feel The Love" Blog Hop

We love our scrappy friends and without you all we wouldn't be here! The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog Design Team is proud to bring you our "Feel The Love" Blog Hop to tell you just how much we think of each and every one of you! We're being sponsored by the amazing AuroraWings! Come hop with us for a chance to win $15 in digital images of choice! How awesome is that?!

As you hop, leave a comment at every stop! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win! A random winner will be selected from all the comments left on our designers' blogs!

All of the LTSCB designers are creating FRIENDSHIP inspiration projects for our blog hop. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a FRIENDSHIP project for an extra entry into the drawing!

Okay, let me side-track for a moment to share my project with you. I created a shaker card and you know how I love shaker cards! I used the absolutely g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. AuroraWings Flower Ballerina digital image. OMG. Thud. This image is stunning!

I printed the image on Ivory Antique Linen cardstock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers and clear Wink of Stella which gave it some beautiful shimmer!

I used my Fuse Tool to create a shaker pouch and filled it with several different shades of purple sequins. Besides my big yummy signature bow, the only other embellishments are flat-back pearls.

For the inside, I layered the sentiment and added a piece of a scalloped border for a little interest.

Very happy to enter this fun shaker card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Marco's Ivory Antique Linen cardstock, GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Wild Lilac cardstock
  • Stamps: AuroraWings Flower Ballerina digital image
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- HB1, HB2, HB3, FS1, CT1
  • Dies/Punches: SB Lacy Ovals and Classic Ovals dies

Now, let's get back to the blog hop! Here is the line-up:
