Another Sequin Shaker Card!

Hi there!


After creating my first shaker card for the Pretty Pink Posh blog hop, I just had to try making another one. This time, I created a background first with some Gelatos and a bit of water.


I cut apart some of the butterflies from the Simon Says Stamp Butterfly Drift Die and added them to the edge of my MFT circle die-cut. The sequins are a mix of my faves, including some from the Springtime Mix from Pretty Pink Posh.
 

I used one of the same Gelato colors to shade the Thanks die-cut from Simon Says Stamp.

If you haven't had a chance to join in this fun blog hop, you've still got time! It doesn't end until later tonight (April 28) at 11:55pm PST.

I hope your week will be sunnier than mine - we've had two days of rain and have four more on the way, along with temps in the low 40's- yikes! It's so tough to think we won't see the sun until Saturday, especially after the long, cold and snowy winter we had! I'm trying to hang in there but it's not easy. I'm really aching for warm, sunny weather!

Okay, sorry for the complaining - thanks so much for stopping by! ♥

You're really on a roll with your Shaker Cards, Barb! I love the shimmer of the Gelatos on your background and greeting, and your butterflies are so pretty! Such a lovely spring color palette, too!
I'm sorry you're having such dreary weather right now! Hopefully, spring is right around the corner so you can enjoy it!

I'll be more than happy to take some of that rain & cool temperature from you. I'm so sorry Spring is taking its time in reaching you. Sending sunshine in your direction. ♥

Absolutely gorgeous, Barb. Your sequins are lovely!! Sorry about your cold and rainy weather. We are enduring two days of severe storms with tornadoes .. so far none touched down in our city ... but there is lots of misery around us.
