A shabby chic shaker with a sketch! whew!

Yep! word on the Tilda street was that  the theme over at MDUC is Shabby Chic. A bunch of the girls over at Totally Tilda were talking about the cards they were making for it and I make a wise crack about "beating them out!" That led to this totally insane, time sucking card that I made using the sketch over at Just Magnolia ANNNNNNDDDDD I had to add a shaker too cause the prize over at Magnolia-licious is two Tilda stamps of your choice! I am also going to enter this over at DCD Christmas club which is of course our dear Clairee's challenge blog and don't go thinking that I got pull over there! Clairee is all business when it comes to her DCD blog and I know I won't get picked unless I deserve it!
All I can say is that after spending on and off my entire Sunday creating this card that I might win something with it even if it is a few comments. When you get those, your are a winner already!

Here is the card that I just can't give away! hahahhah!

I actually created the background paper in photoshop using a picture of paint peeled boards (total shabby chic signature style). I roughed it up good, that is the shabby part!!! I made the tag and the heart for the shaker with me ole cricut (I love you baby.....) and the gorgeous lace in the background was a gift from me lovely friend Lori ahem... I mean M'lynne.
I colored her with my copics, let me know in the comment box if you would like to know the colors I used. I of course glittered her all up good n pretty.
I used my fave flowers from wild orchid (love em!) and some foam glittered snowflakes from Micheals. I used this chunky irridescent snowflaky stuff I got at Gale's (a whole sale supply place if you want to order some I could put it in my store just let me know) and a couple more ribbons which officially made this card the FATTEST one I have ever made!
Please, Christmas angel, all I want for Christmas is Magnolia stamps! ROFL!
