 For my "Lets Squash" it post please go here 

I have just received an order from Lucy's Little Things and couldn't wait to make a shaker card using some of the beautiful sequins. I had this panel already stamped and coloured and thought it would make a great background for my shaker.  The stamp is "Flora Background" from Simon Says and I have stamped in Spiced Marmalade Oxide ink and embossed clear.  I then coloured with Zig markers.

I used the Simon Says Stitched Squares dies to create the shaker front and added the Birthday Circle sentiment. Love how sparkly this turned out!  I am adding this card to the SSS Wednesday challenge "Happy Birthday" and the Die Cut Divas "Window card" challenge.

I needed a Birthday card for the   granddaughter of  my cousin , she is a sweet little 5 year old who loves to bake with her mum, she also loves dressing up so I knew this digital image would suit her perfectly. I also wanted to add a small shaker element as she also loves lots of sparkles ! I cut her name using my Silhouette and coloured the image with Zigs. I can post it now as her birthday was yesterday and she has received it and loved it! I will also add this to the Simon Says Wednesday Birthday challenge

Have a fun Sunday

I love the background on your first card, so beautiful. That adorable winged fairy is so cute on the second card.

The background on your first card is so lovely. I had not thought about stamping with a colored ink and heat embossing with clear. Thank you for that hint! Thanks for joining us at Die Cut Divas.
