Shake Your Shrine

Hello Nomad friends.  It's Day 8 of the 31 Days of Halloween over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  I decided to make a shaker card!  It seemed a good idea at the time!!  I have a bit of a love hate relationship with shakers.  This one I love.  And no leaks!!!  

I've used Lost Coast Designs Goth Shrine ATC size which fit ted perfectly with this Marianne Design ribbon weave die.  I stamped the Shrine with black ink, coloured with distress markers and fussy cut.  I used a circle die to cut out the middle bit.  Don't lose that!  I die cut the ribbon weave panel from black card, wove with orange polka dot organza (thanks CCC Carol), highlighted the pierced border with a white gel pen and added some orange enamel dots.   I cut a piece of black foam slightly smaller than the panel and die cut a hole in them both to line up with the hole in the shrine.  I glued the foam and the panel on my black base card and then glued the piece I cut out of the shrine in the middle of the hole.  I added my sparkly bits, glued on a piece of acetate and added the shrine on top.  Spooktacularly sparkly.  Say that three times fast bwahhahahaha.
