I hope it's as gorgeous outside by you as it is here in Montreal! After a rainy weekend, it's nice to wake up to the sun!
We have a new challenge starting today at Paper Makeup and the theme is: For a Special Lady.
I have been frantically working on Mother's Day cards...mostly for my Etsy shop, but they have sort of taken over my work desk these last few weeks. So this theme worked out well for what I had sitting around.
Dandy Wishes set from Paper Makeup, so I decided to try something a little different with this card. I did sort of a no-lines coloring with the image and colored the flowers in with my ShinHan markers. And then made 3 little shaker frames for the flowers to peak out through. Those shakers are filled with tiny beads instead of sequins. I thought the tiny beads gave it a softer feel than what the sequins would have...and since the frames are so small, the sequins wouldn't have fit very well :)
I used a new stamp set form Winnie & Walter that I won from the online card class I took last month. I have been obsessed with this stamp set since it's perfect for just about everything! To help even out all the dimension, I wrapped some twine around the card and added a button to sort of pull that dimension through the rest of the card.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I hope you will join us this week for this fun challenge!!
I also want to share one more shaker card (I may have another one today...just have to wait and see :) ). It's not related to Paper Makeup, but thought it would be fun to include in this post anyhow.
I would like to enter this card into the Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Card Blog Hop as well :)
