Poppy Sketches #7: thank you from the bottom of my heart.




Hello!

We're back with a new challenge over at



Our super sponsor is



I played with Pretty Pink Posh's


I've been enjoying making shaker cards with glassine envelopes:

paper:  dear lizzy/5th & frolick other:  pretty pink posh sweetheart/gold heart sequins, pti happy die, studio calico heart veneer, SRM sentiment, martha doily, gold thread.


I combined the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh with a couple wood veneer hearts.  It gives the shaker portion fun 'movement'. 

All the paper is from Dear Lizzy's 5th & Frolic collection.  I managed to pop a SRM sticker sentiment on there too.  The martha doily has been stitched down with gold thread, it adds a nice pop of glitz to the card and coordinates with the heart confetti.

Make sure you check out the Poppy Sketches blog and my teamies:
