Butterfly Shaker

 My post today is actually 4days late sorry ladies and is my last post for Simply create Too.

The challenge is make a shaker card and this card was practically made with leftovers -the two pieces of scrap paper from stash and I stamped on them with some craft mag freebie stamps -the top piece of cardstock I found already with the aperture cut and aceatate and 3-D foam pads already in place for another project but unused.

The Chocolate Baroque butterfly was already stamped on the smooshed background so just cut down to fit and stamped the Chocolate Baroque sentiment on an offcut and whilst looking for something to put in the haker I found these little flat black butterflies in a drawer-had them for years -so more neglected stash used.

I admire shaker cards they seem so ambitious I have sequins all over the place and they continue to fall out if the card once finished GOOD JO

I love the way this card came together! Don't you love it when you can put bits together and come up with something this beautiful? I'm sorry I haven't been around much, I don't know why I can't seem to get it together to visit more often, I'm always inspired by your creations.

Carol, you have justified all of the hoarding virtually every crafter does, if only we could all do such a bang-up job. I love the colours you have used in this card and the quirky shaker element.

Leslie Miller said...

Being 4 days late with this one is a good indication of how you really do need to cut back. I would never be able to keep up with as many DTs as you were on. You always managed to do a beautiful job on your creations, though, such as this butterfly shaker. Very pretty!
