April's Challenge: Get Ready For Christmas

Here is what I created for this challenge:
Christmas Shaker cards! 

I used the Bulb Shaker cutting file from The Cutting Cafe.
Since I wanted to use non-traditional colors on my Christmas cards,  I used the "Blossom Song" stack from DCWV. I absolutely love this!!!
I used the pretty Frosty Sequins Mix from Annie's Paper Boutique and some colorful beads.
On the Cricut Explore DS, I used the "write" feature, to write out the caption "Merry Christmas" on each banner (wild card). This is one of my favorite features on the DS.
I added white pearls and a pretty satin bow.
Isn't it just beautiful?

Thank you to Doris and the DT ladies at Crafting By Designs for this AWESOME opportunity!
