Hip Hip Hooray! Nothing says a PAR-TAY like a shaker card! 😀 (…errr….just me?) Last weekend we were invited to a friends house for a celebratory gathering as her daughter Felicity turned sweet sixteen! Every time we go to Elizabeths house, I look forward to my Felicity hug and hearing about the latest school shenanigans and what she is now reading. She is one of those awesome teenagers that seemed to have skipped the whole ‘moody and moping around’ phase. I hope I get one of those when Piper gets to that age. Only another 9 years before i have to worry about a sweet sixteen for Pi… it sounds like ages away, but i am still in shock that Piper is now SEVEN!! Geez! How did that happen…..anyway…. back to the card!
Today’s shaker needed to be cute and fun – and i wanted to include books! So I reached for the Mama Elephant Page Huggers set, and used the bear and the books. While i was pulling that out, i grabbed the Mama Elephant Lunar Animals set also for the mouse and bunny. For accessories, I used some images from the Lawn Fawn Party Animals set. The balloons and big hat are from the Beary Special Birthday set from MFT.
I used floss for balloon strings to add some texture on my card and i used the Hooray honey cuts from Honey Bee Stamps. And just look at those shaky bits!! So many pretty beads, sequins and I also used some small metal discs from Cheery Lynn designs. When the light hits them just right the give a nice metallic shine!
Speaking of shaky bits, i also realised that i managed to trap a hair inside the card. HAHA! Well, too late now! I guess Felicity has a means to clone me now… although I’m pretty sure the world isn’t ready for another Heffy!
To finish up, I used the Interactively Yours set from Heffy Doodle to stamp the ‘shake me’ sentiment at the bottom. Perfect!
Happy Birthday Flick! <3
