Thanks to Sandy Allnock's Youtube video I found another challenge I just had to take part to.
I had really no idea there were this many out there, until I started  participating in a few and visiting fellow cardmakers' blogs.

Anyway this Friday Mash up #200 is all about Black and white and bling, based on challenge #71, #60 Masculine card, #6 monochromatic, #89 heat embossing, #119 anyshape with a banner, #166 Hi or hello (ahoy) with use of sequins, #175 shaker card, #178 use vellum,

I made a shaker card out of this skull and bones die from Provo Craft.
I used clear seedbeads and silver sequins in two sizes for the shaker material.
And the sentiment is made with Eline's alphabet clearstamps from Marianne design.
I've heat embossed it in white on a piece of Vellum onto which I added some rhinestones to hide the gluedots.
