Shaker card at MDUC

Hi lovelies! hope you are all well, quick post tonight as I am so far behind with everything that I am going take about a week to catch up! Alex is much better, still has a cough, but sleeping a bit better, not had an unbroken nights sleep though for a week, and of course now Maya is being all clingy and tearful, so no doubt she has picked up Alex's bug! Oh the joys!!!

OK quickly onto tonight's card, The theme over at MDUC is A shaker card, which I normally love doing, but I couldn't find my micro beads so had to order more, then I couldn't find my acetate so has to use gelatine sheets, then I dropped gesso on the front of the gelatine sheet so had to improvise and use tilda's snowflake to cover the mark!!!! It truly has been one of those weeks!

So here is my card, hope you like it, and I hope you take the time to join in the fun over at the challenge.

This is absolutely gorgeous Kat. All the elements are so well put together, just stunning. Sorry to hear your children are sick with the flu, hope they get better soon. Dispite all the mishaps, your card turned out fabulous. It is very funny reading it though.

Well, if it helps, I do think Tilda's snowflake looks quite nice where it is... it connects her with the scene in the shaker.

I hope your next project doesn't have quite so many missing pieces to improvise around, but the improvisations in this one still create a lovely card.
