Birthday Blessings

I love shaker cards but I just don't take the time (usually) to make them. But I did this weekend! They really are a lot simpler than they seem. For this card, I used an adorable Little Miss Muffet digi called "Adela and Dida" and used lots of bling on the flourishes along with Marble Shazam Rox gemstones on the focal image itself. I cut out two of the wings to make the shaker, and filled it with sparkly purple and gold seed beads. It turned out so cute!

I'm entering "Birthday Blessings" into the following challenges:
