I am recapping the second sketch for May over on the Viva la Verve Blog! I hope you've found time to play along with the Viva la Verve Challenges! We always love to see what you create!! Maureen had a wonderful sketch out of which I created a shaker card!! I don't know about you, but I LOVE shaker cards and don't make them enough!
I used the new Beautiful Things set along with the coordinating Beautiful Flowers Die Set. The papers are from the Sunny Days Ahead Collection from Echo Park. I used the new Copper Blush Sequin Mix for the shaker.
I stamped and embossed the flowers in white onto a light blue cardstock and then sponged the edges with Distress ink in Tumbled Glass. You was stamped and embossed onto a piece of black cardstock die cut using the Flag It Die Set. "Beautiful" was die cut out of gold cardstock and adhered across the flowers. As a finishing touch, I tied some gold and white baker's twine across the card.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!!
