Sweet Shaker Card :)

Hello, my sparkly friends! I hope you're having a happy week! Today I'm sharing a sweet shaker card on the My Craft Spot blog. :o)

This is my final contribution for my box of love for Lily, this month's recipient of the I Feel the Love Project who is battling leukemia. As I was contemplating what to do next for her, several colors of Kimberly's sequins were staring me down! I had no choice but to make a shaker for her sweet little hands to play with. :o)
This card began with sequins in sprightly shades of Caribbean, Perfectly Purple, and Tickled Pink... 
...and I want Lily to find joy amidst her dark and cloudy days. So I tucked them within a puffy cloud. :o) The clouds are embossed with the D'vine Swirls folder for texture and lightly inked in Broken China distress ink.

Along with loving purple, she loves Disney. The darling Disney sweetheart is a cut file from Treasure Box Designs (We're All Ears). Her sweet expression is my favorite from the Peachy Keen In The Garden collection. I dressed her in Lily's favorite color and used Black Licorice Traditional twine for the shoelaces and Mickey balloon string.
Sometimes the simplest sentiments say it all, don't they? :o) Believe is from the Ornate Labels- Christmas stamp set. I used the Ribbon Banners- Wavy metal die set as its base for an extra touch of whimsy and height. The little flowers in the grass were made with the Flowers- Daisy metal die set.

The bright papers (and fussy-cut bunnies) are from Doodlebug's Springtime collection, while the polka dot and starry purples are from Kaisercraft's Magic Happens. Inside, happy little birdies await Lily:

What a joy it has been to create for this angel:
Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day!
