Marbled shaker

Thanks for stopping by. For today's card/ornament, I used one of my shaving cream panels to create a fun shaker. Yep, still working on my marbling pieces and trying to post them before the current episode of Taheerah's Gossip Column is coming to a close tonight. It's always fun if you can draw inspiration from more than one challenge, as is the case today.

Materials used:
Background - shaving foam and distress ink reinkers (Ranger)
Dies - Essentials: Carly cutaways (Winnie & Walter)
Sentiment - Sentimental: Winter (Winnie & Walter)
Image - Season's Tweetings with Evelin T Design (Winnie & Walter),
coloured with Copics
Glitter - Distress glitter (Ranger)
Ribbon - free gift with my order from Ellen Hutson
