Thank You Card ~ Another Shaker

My Craftin Desert Divas Guest Designer Post {here}

I wanted to use same Viva la Verve sketch I used as
inspiration for yesterday's card but this time I wanted to
try my hand at turning it into a shaker card.
I started by embossing the back ground.
Next I adhered the purple and blue strips.
I centered the circle die and cut a window through them.
I cut a scalloped window frame to help the window stand out.
The background behind the flowers is embossed with clouds.
I stamped then fussy cut the flowers, added a sentiment,
some purple and pearl colored sequins and
closed it all up with some foam tape.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flowers from the Petals & Stems stamps set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from CTMH.
*Embossed using a folder from the Cuttlebug Wedding Suite set {grid}.
*Embossed using a folder from the Cuttlebug Skward Set {clouds}.
*Large circle cut using the Standard Circles Small die set from Spellbinders.
*Scalloped circle cut using the Scalloped Circles Small die set from Spellbinders.
*Small circles cut using Fiskars punches
*Sequins from Darice.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
