Merry Monday Challenge 113 - Deck the Halls

Pin It Now! Here's a sweet, non-traditional color combo for Christmas from Merry Monday Challenge. Pink, silver, and white.  I made a shaker frame with silver stars, sequins, and rhinestones, topped with a full triple bow.
To make the shaker frame, I used the Ornament Framelits to cut 2 white ornaments.
Punched the center of the top ornament with 1-1/4" circle.  
Ran it thru the Big Shot with the new 2014 Lovely Lace embossing folder. 
There are rhinestones adhered randomly to the inside of the shaker so it always seems to be in motion, and then some InColor sequins, and some silver bits from my vintage stash of craft supplies. 
Closed it all up in a shaker frame circle, and heat embossed the images on the card front.  
Scattered some more silver sequins about.  
And there you have it :D
Almost halfway to Christmas!
