My Time to Craft #261 - Die Cuts w/Sentiment only

Oh boy...we made it to the weekend! Yippee!
What special plans do you have?
I'm want to craft my little heart out...
but I do have a lot of cleaning and laundry 
that probably should take some priority. it goes.'s a bright's time for another
weekly challenge at My Time to Craft (MTTC)!
MTTC Challenge #261 is to use Die Cuts with a sentiment only.
The challenge - should you decide to accept it... 
is to use only die cuts on your card.
The only stamping we should see would be for a sentiment -
so get out those fabulous (perhaps neglected) dies and get to crafting!

Here's my card to share with you:

I have always loved dies! There are so many things you can do with them.
For this challenge I made a shaker card - whoo hoo!
The shaker frame and sentiment are both dies.  No stamping at all.
To make the shaker frame I used 2 different sizes of the star die. 
I made my own confetti by adding some little bits and pieces that I had 
left over from other projects (stars & trees) and some gold sequins. 

This was a fairly quick card to make but it definitely will need to be
hand delivered or sent specially due to the shaker frame. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Merry Monday #128 - Use stripes, polka dots or both
The Crafter's Cafe challenge #84 - Use Punches and/or Die Cuts
Virginia's View October Challenge - CAS

My lovely DT pals at MTTC  have also made some gorgeous 
creations to inspire  you to play along.  Please go check them out too!

Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
