For a $20 Gift Certificate

Here's what I created for this Challenge
to Inspire you!

Card Stock - Stampin Up, Georgia Pacific
Digital Designer Paper - Lori Whitlock (Patriotic Picnic)
Card Design - Silhouette Store (#78958)
Assorted Sequins - Craftin Desert Divas
(Freedom, Sunny Day, & Emerald Isle)
Trendy Twine  - Peppermint Stick
Sentiment - Craftin Desert Divas (Celebrate Freedom)
Tag Die - Jaded Blossom (Mini Tags 2)
Stars -Jolee's Boutique

To Make this a Shaker Card I used the Offset
Feature in my Silhouette Program and cut out
the Star Shape to make a window....
 I wanted this to be easy to mail 
So I used the NEW We R Memory (FUSE TOOL)
and a Sheet Protector sleeve --- I added the amount 
of Sequins I wanted then sealed it up using the
fuse tool --- Attached it to the backside of the
Striped Card mat and popped the card mat up
just a little bit....

Now that you've seen what I made ---
 let's see what you create!!!
