Shaker Easel Card.

I have created a Shaker Easel Card
as my inspiration piece for 
the second week of

The butterfly paper making up the shaker 
and base of the card is the left over piece from 
the box card I made last week. 
White/cream/green/purple sequins 
all in my stash along with the scrap 
of purple card stock. 
I have had the large butterfly brad
in my stash for ages waiting for the right moment.
Purple polka dot  ribbon and pearls in stash too.

Shaker window made using  Xcut 'Ornate Frame'
I spuddled with the left over cut out insert 
 and managed  to make a smaller pattern up for the base.
Sentiment frame made using 
Cheery Lynn B190  #2 die.
Sentiment created in word and matted 
slightly of centre onto a purple frame
to give a shaddow effect.
Acetate used to create the window and contain the sequins.

Side View showing Easel  contstruction.
Below showing the base of the easel.
Design paper on base is a magazine freebie.
