Twinkle Team Blog Candy! Spring Shaker Card

I decided to do three challenges in one! OCC had a Clear Thinking challenge to use something clear on your card. I immediately thought of an acetate window, then thought of Miss Madelynn's sketch for the Twinkle Team. SCS had a Limited Supplies challenge 200 to make anything but a Christmas card & no green, no red so this works for that too. COOL {{GRIN}}!! Very easy for me, not really owning any X-mas stamps or sentiments, though it was hard to not use celery on this card. The colour, not the vegetable!! HEHE

This week, if you play along with the Twinkle Team and try out Madelynn's sketch, you can be entered to win blog candy!
MTTSC3 (3) So upload your version of the sketch to SCS or PCP with the keyword MTTSC3 or to your blog, then leave a comment at The Whimsical Butterfly to enter (leaving a note as to where she can find your card). Be sure to visit the entire TWINKLE TEAM to see more inspiring versions of this week's sketch. Links on sidebar.

This card is pretty easy, the pale plum CS layer was embossed using the d'vine swirls folder. The shaker box was made using special foam squares from Jody at Confessions of a Ribbon Addict. The banana and pale plum layers over the shaker are cut with Nestabilities dies. Inside the shaker are two sizes of punched flowers, glass micro beads and glitter. The base of the shaker is white CS stamped with a flower and leaves from  stamped in Adirondack ink coloured with Copic colours V 04, 09, 12 and YG 67 and G 21. The little flowers are actually from a daisy chain fibre but two nipped off the end quite nicely; I'd been afraid they would unravel.

Enjoy, Rebecca
