Christmas Shaker!!

I love making shaker cards and Christmas is the perfect excuse for lots if bling and sparkle! To make this card I used the older "Pile of Gifts" die from Simon Says which I cut into a circle blank and added some acetate.  I then distressed a large rectangle in the area behind my window with a rainbow effect. I used lots of pastel sequins for the shaker element.  The Holly is cut with the Poppy Stamps "Holly side Strips" die and coloured with Zigs, I then added the sparkly berries and a gold embossed sentiment.

 I am adding this card to the current SSS Flickr challenge "Creating for the Holidays"

I have also been busy over the last few weeks making a large cot  quilt and with the left over fabric I also  made a  pram quilt for my daughter who is expecting her first baby this month, also our first grandchild so very exciting!

I have only made two other quilts so kept it simple with a square design. 

I am really pleased with the end result.
