Allsorts Guest DT Shaker Card



As you may have guessed from the title, this is my Guest DT card for this week's Allsorts Challenge which I'm sponsoring with 4 digi images from A Passion for Stamps.
The image I've used is Mannequin and I've added lace, a bow and some gems. You can see another of the new (soon to be released) Tonic Studios border punches used down the side of the image.This one is called Scalloped Diamond Border. There are so many possibilities for this punch - I'll be showing you them as soon as I get a chance - you'll definitely "need" this one to perk up your stitching themed cards among others!
There is a little video on Blog Tonic showing the 9 new punches so don't forget to have a look..
For the "shaker" part of my card I thought it would be a little different to use buttons to tie in with the Mannequin and faux stitching.
The two little butterflies at the top right are from my Tonic Studios Butterfly punch

I'm off to a family wedding today, so I hope the weather stays fine - have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned, Ruth :)
