June 2016 Paper Pumpkin - Bonus Project Shaker Card

Hello lovelies.  Today is July 4th in America, when we celebrate our Independence, and it's been a great one for me.  I celebrated with a 4 day weekend, and spent the 3rd with family and fireworks.  I hope y'all had a great one too! On Friday, my first day of celebrating, I created a shaker card using the contents from the June 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I loved this kit, as it was full of sequins!!!!

This is what I created, do you like?

I actually made two, one as a template for the one I created on YouTube.  Oh my I am still getting use YouTube and Blogging so please bear with me as I learn.  I am from the south and love to talk, especially about something I am passionate about.

I am including the instructions for the card below, so that you can join in on the fun as well.  If you do not currently subscribe to Paper Pumpkin please follow the link to the right of this post.  Every month you are a subscriber to Paper Pumpkin through me, I will send you 5 exclusive card designs using the contents from the kit, and a few other Stampin Up! products.
