Here is what I created for this linky party.......
I am SUPER excited with my project because it is a Shaker card!
My 1st Shaker card!
 Before I began I thought it would be a difficult process but it was so easy that
I cannot wait to make more. In the up coming months I have several birthday cards to
send out and this is one of them.The beautiful butterfly shaker card is from The Cutting Cafe'.
I adjusted the size for a bigger card. I used Resplendence Angel Dust (C.I.) on the center part of
my butterfly. I filled my shaker card with white beads.
I wanted a touch of elegance so I added pearl dew drops around the wings.
I hand cut my tag and stamped "Birthday Wishes", placed a flower button on top of the beautiful bow that I made with a twill chevron ribbon that I had won over at V's Sweet Ideas.

I hope you will head over to Craftin Desert Diva's and see what my fabulous DT sisters came up with for this challenge as well as entering the challenge yourself!

  20. Hello again, my dear friend! Just a flutterby message... it probably would have occurred to you while crafting, but I wanted to tell you that unless I'm mistaken, this is a different Maddy. The one for Simon Says Stamp was older. Such a sad state that there are so many children fighting cancer that we can confuse them all. :( I just thought your gorgeous heart would want to know! I hope you have a beautiful night, my beautiful friend!

    Hugs and blessings,

  21. Another great job, love this shape and the beads inside! I like the pearls and the flower ribbon just awesome, nice touch! Great job in entering our shape card challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. Thanks again!
