MFT You Trio Die-namics and All About You Shaker card for the Color Throwdown #444 Using MFT

Happy Thursday!

I have another card for the Color Throwdown Challenge. 

This weeks colors are Green , Grey and White. 

I wanted to try my hand at what Jennifer McGuire showed 
with using strips of card stock to make your own pattern paper. 

I first used Distress inks in Pine Needles and Hickory Smoke to ink blended onto some Bristol Smooth paper and then spritzed some water to get the splotches.

I then cut it up in random sizes and attached to a card base with some tape adhesive. 
I then cut it out with the large rectangle stitched die from the MFT Blueprints 13 set. 

I cut out the YOU using the You Trio Die set from the MFT Sketchy Flowers Card Kit.

I also used the free with $60 banner dies to heat emboss the sentiment onto.
 I also used the All About You stamp set from the same card kit. 

I made the YOU be the shaker part and filled with some random white sequins, seed beads and silver chunky glitter. 

Thank you so much for visiting and I will see you next week for another challenge!!
