First try shaker card is less than 10? Crazy!

Ok, so I wanted to make a shaker card so bad for one of Paulina's Craft Dash Challenges, because I see all of her beautiful shaker cards and just think... " waaahhhh I want one!"   Lessons learned when making this card:
1.  If you have never made a shaker card before, don't try to make your first one in less than 10 minutes!  (It was a big ol' mess up in here!)
2.  Have lots of extra little beads on hand in case the first round you aim into the circle goes anywhere but in it!
3.  Maybe a square shaped shaker card should be your first attempt. ( At least for me it should have been!)

Ok, now with my lessons learned I'm geared up for the next the challenge to try and make one in a safer manner ( did I mention that I cut my finger literally with my Cutterbee's because the 10 minute demand put me in anxiety mode? hehehe! ).  I did however manage to meet the deadline even though the card is not all that I hoped it would be I do see light at the end of the tunnel!

Time To Make: 9 mins. 50 secs.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps
Sequins: Whimsical
Ink: Memento and Colorbox

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
