Anything Goes Crafty Party at Craftin' Desert Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome Back! Thank you for all the kind words this past weekend. Making the All Things Spring projects and sitting Easter Bunny cards were a great way to end Spring Break. Although I am heading back to school today I still have lots of ideas and projects to complete. A belly box is calling my name!

Today also begins a new Linky Party at Craftin' Desert Divas hosted by Tara.

Crafty Party Theme...
Anything Goes
These are the best since you have so many options!

Here is my project...
Another shaker card using sequins. This time I used the negative (the paper around the die-cut). I taped a piece of clear transparency to the underside and then added double-sided mounting tape around the kite. After making this card I purchased some different foam tape to make the shaker slightly thicker. 

The thank you stamp peeks through the shaker window. Three purple sequins were adhered to the upper and lower right corners and the purple ribbon mimics the kite string. I can hear "Let's go fly a Kite".

  13. Sequins in a shaker card are a brilliant idea. I love the ribbon with the multiple bows in it so it feels like the tail of a kite. Fun card!
