Clean & Simple and a Shaker Card Tutorial

Hi everyone and thanks for hopping by here today. My card for today is another shaker card. Can you tell that I like them? LOL :-) I choose a clean and simple layout to make the shaker really stand out. I also did a mini-tutorial on how to make them on our Belles 'n Whistles blog. For the tutorial please click here. 

I used Tube Wear from Belles 'n Whistles Spring, Cleaning and Summertime Collection. The image was stamped onto cryogen white paper from Arjo Wiggins with Tuxedo Black ink from Memento. I colored using my Copics. As I said a chose a clean and simple layout with no DP's which was also inspired by a sketch/card from Suzanne. For decorations, besides the shaker pouch,  I only used a little glitter (holo glitter from Viva), 2 buttons and some tiny half pearls.

Hope you like my clean and simple card and let me know if you liked the tutorial as well!

Love and Hugs,
