FMS#178 a shaker card

The sketch from Fresly Made Sketches made me think straight away of a card I saw recently which was made by Bronwyn Eastley which I have been wanting to try. So I did! 

It should have been a lot faster but I just couldn't get anything to work properly the first time. Anyway, I wanted to make a shaker card and finally got all the right pieces in the right places.

I used the Sale-A-bration Set You Brighten My Day, Lost Lagoon and Pistachio Pudding cardstock and ink, Spring Flowers Embossing Folder, the Shaker frames adhesive rims and window sheets cut with the circles framelits, and the wonderful HelloYou thinlits dies. The shaker contains some small beads and sequins from the In Colour Sequins Assortment. I would have liked to add glitter but that seemed a dangerous option given how everything else went wrong initially. Maybe next time…
Some Lost lagoon bakers twine was separated to give thinner threads and used to stitch on a little button and tie on the tag. The white threads are from separating the White Jute Ribbon.

I was happy with the eventual result. It's such a cute set to use.

Thanks for looking, Liz
