MCT Try me Tuesday!!!

Hi My Friendly Bloggers!
Today is MCT Try me Tuesday!!!
For this week we are to use a die – any of Emma’s dies – in a way that is unexpected, that is not
 its intended use. For example, use an oval for a leaf, a circle for a pumpkin…

I decided to make a shaker card, with all of the BEAUTIFUL shaker projects that the MCT sisters are making, I got inspired!!! The first die that is used in a different way is the snow flake from
Winter Flake Dies, I used it as a flower and added it to the Flower Petal Dies and the Stitched Doily Die  is the base of my shaker, that is different too. So I cut two Doilies and cut the circle part out of one of them and added some Microbeads!!!! The Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die  is also used a different way, and I added some stamping on the bow from the I'm A Lucky Girl! Stamp Set, the sentiment is from Treasured Moments Stamp Set and the cute little butterfly is from All Around Holidays Stamp Set.
Hope you like my take on a shaker card!!!!

Supplies I Used for my Card:
I'm A Lucky Girl! Stamp Set (for the stamp on the bow die)
Flower Petal Dies
Medium Stitched Scalloped Bow Die
4x4 Journal Die + More (for the 4x4 die)
Stitched Doily Die
Winter Flake Dies
All Around Holidays Stamp Set (butterfly)
Treasured Moments Stamp Set
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great week!!!:)

I think this may be the first shaker using the doily die. You used a lot of things differently. Great job on the flower...so clever. Love it!
