Hey There in Cotton Candy!

Good Morning Friends! It's Monday again and I'm here to share a card that I hope will brighten your day a bit!

This little shaker beauty has been created for the CAS Colours & Sketches  Challenge #124!

I adore shaker cards and make them all the time for every occasion! In this case though... being a CAS challenge, I needed to tone it down just a little so I went with vellum for the windows instead of acetate. This muted the colors and left the whole thing feeling more soft and clean.

My butterflies are both Stampin' Up punches, one in patterned paper and one in glitter paper... love those little guys!

The sentiment comes from one of the best sentiment sets out there (I think anyway), the Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches... it pretty much covers everything in a fun and playful font style.

I seem to be hooked on  pink these days... no idea why, it's just the color that appeals to me most when I'm looking at the paper bins in my craft room...

Anyway, hope I was able to bring some color and fun to your Monday morning... have a great day!

  1. What a fab idea to use my sketch at CC&S to make a shaker card and I love the idea of using vellum instead of acetate. Super job! I should make more shaker cards, not really a technique I've used very much but your card inspires me to have another go! Stef x
