Just Us Girls #201 - Technique Challenge

Hi everyone!  Today over at Just Us Girls I'm the hostess!  Since it's technique week, I chose the shaker card technique.  I've never made one before and have always wanted to make a shaker card. 

I've had these shaker pouches from Impression Obsession for a few years.  My LSS was demonstrating them once, so I purchased a pack.  Really easy to use!  I stared by stamping the flowers that are inside the shaker box.  They are from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamp set.  I stamped them in Hero Arts inks I recently purchased.  The leaves were stamped in Memento Luxe Pear Tart pigment ink.  Inside the shaker box are some microbeads I've had for a while.  The sentiment and flowers surrounding it are from Folk Art Florals, also from WPlus9.   The stitching above was stamped with PTI's Sew Simple Borders.  The paper is October Afternoon's Sidewalks.

 I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches
 Stop by these blogs and see the very different shaker cards the JUG design team created.
