The Paper Players #475

We have a new sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players!  While the sketch features circles, you are welcome to sub in any shape!  Since Valentine's Day is on the horizon, I went with a heart theme. Here is the original sketch design-

I created my heart panel in Cricut Design Space.  I sized a rectangle and then placed six heart shapes inside the rectangle.  I did not even use any Cricut cartridges, just the basic shapes found in Design Space. I am currently on a mission to actually use up my papers vs filing them away (AKA hoarding).  My background paper is from the somewhat Christmas themed Cedar & Pine papers!  I thought the Peach striped background would be perfect for my shaker card.  Close To My Heart calls it Peach, I seriously feel it leans more to the pink side! I created a custom mix of shaker elements to keep with the white/peach  pink theme! The sequins blend way better in person than my photo taking skills! Those holographic sequins catch all kinds of crazy light, they have a pink sheen in person!
