Shake it 2



I am enjoying making Shaker cards at the moment, so here's another entry for the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says!!  I used my Silhouette machine to cut the balloon window in some white cards stock.  I cut the image again and coloured the balloons with Copics then adhered them to the cut image.  The base card just has a piece of patterned paper attached for the background to the window.  I added loads of sequins as its quite a large window and I wanted lots of sparkle!! 
I am also linking this card to the Die Cut Challenge at Virginia's View.




The sentiment is cut from this new die from Poppy Stamps.


My DD went to Glastonbury last week and managed to bring home a nasty summer cold with her, unfortunately the whole family has now caught it and we are all suffering!!  Hopefully we will all be better for the weekend as we are hoping to go to a Lavender Festival held locally!

Enjoy your week.

fabulous card Sally. I saw the Festival on the TV. Sure was wet and muddy. No wonder she came home with the cold... but no good, that she passed it on :-(
