Shaker Hello

Welcome!  Today's card was made on the weekend, using the current MFT Sketch and Color challenges.  And to add a bit of fun, I threw in a shaker for the Just Add Ink challenge 😄

It's hard to see in the photo, but I clear-embossed the Roses All Over stamp onto both the card base and a panel of white cardstock.  On the base, I then blended some distress inks in colors to match the challenge pinks.  On the white panel, I die-cut a circle opening and then put together my shaker, using pinks and yellows as well as clear and marshmallow sequins.

For the top panel, I die-cut two slanted sentiment strips from each of the yellow challenge colors and a pink circle from Cotton Candy.  The 'hello' was die-cut from black and adhered to the pink circle.  And that's it!

Thanks for visiting!

Way to go for combining challenges, girl! I love the rose pattern peeking through your shaker and your color palette is delightful (in this part of the world, we are desperately waiting for spring to take hold)! Another really pretty card, Karren!

ohhh yum what a fabulous colour combo and the design with the circle of that background stamp, brilliant. My favourite card for a while now.
