Challenge #25.-Shake it with a Quirky Winter Color Palette.

Well, this is our last challenge of 2014. Time goes by so quickly.
For this Holiday Season, we want to cheer you up.
So, lets make some shaker cards using this lovely winter colors palette. Alternatively you can choose to just make a shaker card (or project), in any colors; or you can make any project you like using the color palette.

So that is three choices:
a) shaker with color palette,
b) shaker with any colors,
c) any project with the color palette,

 it's up to you to decide!

Our sponsor for this challenge is THE CUTTING CAFE, who provided the team with some funny shaker card files.


First place will get 3 sets from The Cutting Cafe
Second place will get 2 sets from The Cutting Cafe
Third place will get 1 set from The Cutting Cafe


Anna used the colour combo, and said " I finally decided to make a vintage card, hope that it's ok? The color combo is really awesome, I would probably never use it that way if it wouldn't be for this challenge LOL But it looks really good!" 
Anna, your card is awesome too!


We want to welcome Myriam to our Design Team.


I made a gift bag with Mitten Shaker card from our sponsor The Cutting Cafe!

This is a two parts project. This is the first and it is page for my Nostalgia Smash Book made with the funny Snowman Shaker Card provided by our sponsor. The sentiment and the snowflakes are from the file Fun with Frosty, also provided by The Cutting Cafe. The girl in the picture is my daughter Sofi, having fun in the snow. Next week you will see this project complete.

I used the Snowman Shaker card set in PDF format, and cut it out by hand, badly as you can see. I also used Fun with Frosty the Snowman to put the sentiment in his tummy.

Hi everyone! Today for my project I used Mitten Shaker.  From our sponsor The Cutting Cafe.

I made a card and ornament tree with palette colours to this challenge.

Hello everyone, after a really difficult weeks, I want to share with you a card using the Mitten Shaker, provided for our amazing sponsor The Cutting Cafe.
