#851 – Happy Birthday Friend

Hello and welcome! Somehow managed to make a card today – I wanted to make a shaker, since I recently bought some shaker sequins + beads mix! πŸ™‚

Happy Birthday Friend

On this card, I first applied a light coat of brown distress ink, then used the smallest polka dots stencil from the Simon Says Stamp Seeing Dots I added a bright blue ink. I used the same ink on a scrap strip of white cardstock also, to use for the shaker background. The critter is from Mama Elephant Three Amigos stamp set, which I watercolored using ink from my Zig Brush pens. I then fussy cut them all, and also die cut a strip of cardstock using the ‘Friend’ from My Favorite Things. I then made a shaker card using all these pieces. Pretty quick to make, I should say. πŸ™‚
