Shake it Up Baby!

yet another day with 2 posts! amazing, isn't it? but then you are probably going to have to wait several days to see anything else because I feel like melted poo on a stick.... blechity blech blech. heading straight to bed as soon as I post this....

but I sure did have fun making this one. I saw yesterday that Pretty Pink Posh was having a blog hop, asking people to make a sequin shaker card and play along. I also was days behind getting my guest project made for Darlene over at The Sisterhood of Crafters (challenge theme is 'things with wings'). seemed like the perfect time to combine both into one project! :)  of course it did take me 2 days to get it finished, but that is okay.

the cutey image is from The Doodle Garden and is called 'Darcy Dragonfly'. it's hard to see, but I used lots of touches with various colors of glitter pens to add accents to the fairy, the flower, and the little dragonfly. I also used my white gel pen on the flower. papers are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut collection, flowers are Prima, and sentiment sticker is by SRM.

Spellbinders dies were used to make the shaker card. the tiny leaf flourishes (up know how much I love these!!!) and dragonflies are all dies by Cheery Lynn. the sentiment is a punch by SU!, accented with a white gel pen. clear packaging was re-purposed for the top of the shaker.

As You Like It - fave item to recycle and why: well I am back again with same items as before, clear packaging and buttons! as I mentioned on my other post, clear packaging can just be used for SO many things. here it is the topper for the shaker, but it can be used for so many neat project elements, especially when paired with dies. buttons just happen to belong on all of my papercraft projects. :)
