Lili of the Valley Challenge #14



Good Morning everyone!
The week has passed by so quickly and once again I have neglected my blog. I honestly don't mean to neglect my blogging duties...honest! It seems that I get so busy around the house and although I still find time to create cards, I fall short when it comes to getting them posted on my blog. I'm seriously going to have to do something about this!


This card is for Lili of the Valley's Challenge #14. The sketch was designed by Donalda (Enjoying the Journey), thank you so much for the inspiration Donalda!
Speaking of inspiration, while browsing the blogs for inspiration, I was inspired by Iris's beautiful cards to make a shaker type card. I have always wanted to make one of these cards as well and decided to take the plunge and make one. I found the instructions here and I was amazed at how easy shaker cards are to make! If you are in need of inspiration or in need a template for a project, be sure to check out the resource area at Splitcoaststampers!



Card details.................

stamp- Lili of the Valley, sentiment - SU, c/s SU and PTI, DP PTI's Polka Dot Basics, and acetate for window, inks- Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers. To embellish my card I sewed around the edges of the card mat, used ribbon and flowers. For the shaker contents I used the mini beads that I won from Rina and beads from SU. I also used mounting tape, extra fine glitter, pearls and Nesties lg. circle dies.

Before I sign off I would like to congratulate the new Little C's Divas! Way to go girls and I hope you have a blast...I know I did!

As always, have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Hugs


Risa
