MCT ~ Inspire Me Wednesday

Good morning! Today is Inspire Me Wednesday over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team. This day is when we create a project that inspires us whether it be someone else's project., colors or whatever.
For my card today I was inspired by my sweet friend a sweet and MCT alumni DT Stacey. You can see here post by clicking here. I adored her card and thought I need to make this for my other sweet young friend. She just graduated from my alma mater and of course had to use our school colors.  
I used the Stitched "Capture" Frame with Arrow Die, this die is PERFECT for shaker cards. Since I needed to make this a graduation card I looked thru all my amazing My creative Time products and let me just say, there are a ton of options. I used the Here's Lookin At You and the Follow your Dream sets. My numbers are from Number Fun Dies + Add Ons, LOVE these number dies, they come in handy a lot! My Martha Stewart glitter looks blue but trust me its purple... sigh for that because this card did turn out pretty cute!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI
Ink ~ VersaFine
Martha Stewart glitter

That is it for me today ~ don't forget we have a new challenge going on, click here for all the details. Also starting next week the July My Creative Time release starts ~ you don't want to miss that either!

  6. Beautiful job on your shaker...I also liked the inspiration card. I like the words inside the shaker window. I agree that the frames are perfect for making a shaker. Love the colors and the touch of twine.

  8. WOW! What awesome school colors!!! Love this layout too! And I like the idea of putting the die cut words inside the window. Hmmm....I'll have to remember that idea. Hey, did you finally run out of your signature ribbons? LOL! I noticed the last few projects are without. I'm sure you're stocked to the ceiling in that stuff. You always make it look so effortless and perfect.
