Denim Butterrflies

Back again for more inspiration for

This time I have a  shaker card for you.
The butterfly paper is by Hunkydory
from their Little book of Jewelled Butterflies.
(This is the nearest I have found to the LOTV Art Pads
which are now sadly ended.)
You get 144 pages with 24 images. to choose from.

I have used denim blue cardstock
with a blank card base to make the easel shape with.
To make the shaker element I have used two sheets of acetate
with white sequins sandwiched between behind the diecut
border. I used Sizzix  scalloped rectangle 657905.
White lace butterflies from my stash.
Th sentiment is a Britannia word die.
It doesn't really show here but I die cut the word
from the blue card and then used the card with 3d pads
 to make the raised portion for the easel to stand behind.

Close up of the shaker element.

Hi Mrs A
Lovely card and fab topper. I've never used the LOTV ones but a lot of folk seem to lament their discontinuation . Makes you wonder why they stop doing something so popular.
Having seen the photos on Darnell's blog, looks like you had a great meet up.
Hoping to meet up with the dear lady myself tomorrow.
Best wishes.
