SHOPPING OUR STASH #204 - Red, Red Wine

Hey there! Happy Tuesday to you all. We've a new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, it's all about the color red, or wine, or both! (a liquid refreshment near and dear to my heart! LOL!) Here's the card I made:

A wine themed shaker card? Yes please!! I looked on the Google for wine bottle clip art, Once I found a simple outline, I printed it out, fussy cut it, and used that as a template to trace around on the back side of the main panel. Then I cut it out with an X-Acto knife. (I suppose I could have just printed it directly onto my paper panel, but that would have been way too easy!) I went around the edge with a black marker to make the shape stand out a bit more. Then I went in search of red and silver sequins to fill the shaker with. I love that sentiment and knew I was using it for the inside of the shaker. I forgot to take a picture on the inside, but it say "Seriously." (Insert Dr. Evil laugh here) ☺

So, ready to play along? Sure you are! We'd love to see what you come up with, so be sure to link up your card or project at Shopping Our Stash! Please do check out what the other lovely ladies came up with for this challenge and leave them some love on their blogs! Thanks for stopping by!
