Shaker card - Timeless Love

One of the lovely ladies in my classes said she'd like to make a shaker card, so we'll be making one this semester.

An elegant shaker card
I've never considered myself to be a very "pink person" but something about these flowers whispered "pink" to me!

I wanted the shaker to be a bit subtle and elegant, so I decided to use the Metallics Sequin Assortment .... which led me to using some black cardstock to go with the black sequins.

The colours are Pink Pirouette (probably my least used colour!), Basic Black, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz (for the leaves).

The flowers and leaves on the exterior are watercoloured, except for the centres of the flowers - that's gold Wink of Stella.  The petals have a coat of clear Wink of Stella that you can't see in the photo - you'll just have to trust me when I say they  have a lovely subtle shimmer!

The You're Fabulous greeting (from the A Whole Lot of Lovely set) was inked up with my markers for stamping.  Then I surrounded it with a soft sponging of Pink Pirouette ink.

The fabulous greeting inside the card is from the Happy Birthday Everyone stamp set which, like A Whole Lot of Lovely, is an exclusive Hostess Set.  So, if you like them, book yourself a party or workshop! (It can even be an online / virtual party!).
