A friend is going through a rough time so I thought I’d send her a Thinking of You card. I dug out these older, gorgeous Webster’s Pages papers and I’m so glad I did. I cut the mirror on the bottom left with an X-acto before I die cut the label shape so I could exclude it. If you’ve never done this technique before, you just cut the part you want to exclude carefully then tuck the die underneath.

I used leftover Spellbinders packaging to create the window for my shaker. I really should make shakers more often, they are so much fun! You can see the sequins inside but it also has microbeads that you can’t see as well.

So, now the moment you’ve been waiting for… I am offering blog candy! I’ve been making lots of jewelry lately so I am offering a silver bar necklace like the one above, with your choice of colour of crystal or stone (from the colours I have). I will contact the winner to find out more about their preferences. So, what do you have to do to enter? It’s easy. Sign up for my email updates (over on the sidebar), leave me a comment saying you signed up AND enter to win at Unscripted Sketches. You can enter by commenting or entering a card or both but if you enter a card, you may come back and leave another comment saying you did so for another chance to win! If the winner I pick hasn’t entered at Unscripted Sketches, I will choose again. I will pick the winner next Saturday and she will have 48 hours to reply.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Beautiful card! I have that paper and I like it. I would never have thought to use it on a shaker card but it's fab. :)
