 Hello everyone,

Yay, today is Friday, it is sunny and quite hot and I really should get out a do some weeding...I should, really,  I should.....mmmmm.

Oh, well, another day let's see a card instead and eat chocolate..

And I went green, as the leftovers flowers and leaves were calling out to me to use then up, 
so I went a nice spring green..

and then the urge for a shaker hit me..

So made my shaker element, the old way, and it worked..
Now you can see them..

And now you can't..

Then all the flowers which I had bunched together
 with their leaves into posies and glued them in place, nice spring colours too..

Another blast from the past,
 they are lovely corners details and I do love that border, so leaving it out to play with again..

Left them white as it worked..

Added Happy Birthday white die cut onto the acetate.

and gave it a shake..



So satisfying..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

Crafting is MUCH more fun than weeding Chrissy- you made a great choice!
Your card is a beauty with those gorgeous flowers and lovely spring colours.

Vicki said...

Truly delightful card! The spring colors and shaker design are wonderful. Love all of the pretty flowers you've added. It's always fun to pull out items we haven't used in a while or forgotten about and create with them again. Thanks for sharing at Colorful Options March Challenge.

Beautiful! I love the shaker and this is so pretty. The corners look great on here too. I had mine out the other day to use on a card and just couldn't make them work for what I was doing. Love them on your card though.

I love me a shaker, especially when it is as beautiful as this. So fun that you dusted off the Spellbinders dies, they are the perfect accent.
