This is my final post as a DT member of House of Cards.
I've made the tough decision to step down.

Here is the card I made using a wonderful image from Digistamps4Joy.
It's called "Coral Corner" and you can find it HERE.

I've created a shaker card for this special occasion.

I colored the image, and then created the shaker element.
I filled it up with a combination of glitter, bling, beads, and even some little seashells.
Finally, I added the ribbon.

Here's a closer look:
