A shaker paper bag card... "It's a Girl"...

Hi Everyone,

I made this paper bag card for a very special friend who gave birth a gorgeous baby girl, just a few weeks ago. I know that the colors I used are not the traditional ones for a baby card but I wanted to create something different, unique and special like she is to me... I hope she likes it.

All the stamps are from Magnolia. Papers from stash. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the images are colored with distress inks. I added "glossy and crackle effect" to give it more dimension.

I wasn't sure about the shaker part because, to be honest, this is my first trial and in the end I liked the final result.

Stay tuned...I will show more paper bag cards soon... :)
