Happy Mother's Day

Hi Friends! It's time for Papertrey's Blog Hop!


 
April Inspiration

I made this card in record time, and that included the shaker part! a half hour :-) Needless to say I am a very slowwwwww card maker. This die is from Papertrey and it's called Mix and Mat : Scallop Die   easy to use, I cut it out with some watercolor paper. water colored it in, added the foam tape, sequins, and woola!

That looks marvelous, such rich, saturated color!

WOW! Your choice of warm, rich colours couldn't be more perfect for this pretty die, which you've elevated to gorgeous in transforming it into a shaker! Thirty minutes is impressive! I'd still be scratching my head wondering what to make at the 60 minute mark! Truly love this!
