Creative card crew falling for you

Hello everyone! What a weekend I have had! I had a busy couple of shifts at work as per the norm but managed to get hit in the head which resulted in a very sore bump and possibly even a mild concussion! My head is still aching now and is so sore to touch! I'm sure it will get better soon, thank goodness I have a fringe to cover my unsightly bump!
Onto our challenge today though over at Creative card crew and our theme is "falling for you" so love, marriage that sort of thing. We are lucky to be sponsored by the fab Paper shelter who have donated us images to use. Sorry for my photos it was getting dark when I took them!

I decided to make a shaker card (my first can you believe!) I actually loved it and will definately be making more of these in the future they are so cute! I have used papers from My minds eye lost and found collection along with cheesecloth and ribbon from stash. Lace and flowers from Wild orchids with some flowers coming from a local craft store

I have coloured my sweet image with prisma pencils and used a nellie snellen die to cut the frame and acetate. My shaker bits are pink and white glitter. I have some micro beads around somewhere and will def be popping them into a shaker card soon for some extra noise lol!

I have cut my tabs with nesties fancy tags and added glittery pearls. My simple sentiment is Hanglar. From this angle you can see the popped up frame for the shaker.
I would like to enter this into Truly scrumptious Shaker card challenge, The Emerald faerie garden flowers, Totally papercrafts layer upon layer, Challenge up your life colour challenge, The squirrel and the fox one for the girls and Corrosive flying things.
I hope you can join us this time and do check out the fab DTs creations we even have some new teamies on board!
Thanks so much for coming by here again friends! Hugs to you all

Stunning shaker card and all the gorgeous embellishments. You really went all out on this beauty! Really noticed the slight hues of pink that you sponged on the edges of certain elements. Wonderful delicate touch!

Hi Rebekah, just playing catch up with blogs. Your card is just gorgeous, love the colours! I've never made a shaker card myself - I remember them from years ago and always thought them a bit naff - this one certainly isn't! Sarah

PS. Sorry to hear you've hurt your head, do hope it gets better soon. Maybe you should get yourself checked out if you think your concussed? Sarah
