Picking Up the Pieces Monday Vol. 21: A Shaker Card

It's Monday and back to the daily grind.  Hope you all had a festive Easter weekend!  I love family time and my kiddos were wiped out after all the eating and Easter egg hunting.

Today I decided to finally make a shaker card.  I have a bunch of sequins that I've been hoarding, and I'm in love with my Doodlebug Designs sequins.  They come in these cute little containers and come in varying shades in each color!

Pretty right?!

So here's what I made inspired by the latest Fusion Card Challenge

Lawn Fawn Daphne's Closet and Pink Lemonade pattern paper, Lawn Fawn Blue Skies and dies, 
Lawn Trimmings Coral, Doodlebug Designs Sequins, Hero Arts India Ink Black, Sizzix Oval stacking dies

using the sketch from the challenge

I kinda let the pattern paper do all the talking since I spent waaaay too much time assembling the shaker  That's it for me!  Mahalo for stopping by!!
