Challenge day at La La Land Crafts!!

Are you ready for this weeks challenge over at La La Land Crafts?!

Maureen has challenged us to make a shaker card!  
It's been a very long time since I'd made a shaker card.  
I've really enjoyed being a guest design team member for La La Land Crafts, the challenges each week have gotten me to think more and more outside the box and I like that.

I made a Christmas card for today.  It's pretty simple in design the patterned paper is called Mistletoe by Memory Box.  It's so pretty I didn't want to cover it up with lots of layers or embellishments.  I colored Angel La La with Copic markers trying to match my paper.  I'm really happy with her hair color, red hair runs in my family so I'm rather partial to it!  I didn't get it but my oldest son has my Mom's copper red hair as do all my cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.  Here are the marker colors I used for her hair: R22, R37, R46, R59, E37, E44 & E59.
I built the shaker part of the card with Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities, that took a little thought!  Filled it with some different size and shape white beads and hoped for the best.  I had to take it apart twice...  you really don't need a whole bunch of beads I found out. 
Maureen used Princess La La for her card so she's on sale at La La Land Crafts for 20% off through Tuesday.  You can find Angel La La there too!

Love the colors and the shaker box effect. i know you used nestabilitis, but what about the clear plastic mold? Where did that come from. I would love to try..need a little more info. Thank you for sharing.

VERY lovely Jan!! I adore this angel... especially with red hair ;D heehee (yes, I'm a redhead) she looks much sweeter than I though. The DP and bow are so elegant and perfect with this shaker angel! I think I will make a bunch of these for Christmas. Well, okay maybe just the ones I'm sending in a box of goodies cause this might be hard to mail huh?! LOL. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration Jan. *Ü*
