Atlantic Hearts 168 - Shaker Card

Usually I find a sketch to be very easy to work with but this time around, I really struggled... I wasn't sure where to begin. After much thought, I decided to create a shaker card. I also went to one of my favourite paper packs for my colour scheme and that is Calypso. 

Using two retired stamp sets, I created a background of greenery (and some Lagoon, of course... I can't leave out my favourite colour!)  I tend to add too many sequins (or glitter or whatever goes inside the shaker part) when creating a shaker card and this time was no exception so after removing about half of the sequins - and they stick to EVERYTHING - I sealed up the back of the card and then finished the front. 

I recently found the little gems in the perfectly matched colour to this paper pack... loving them!
