Pretty purple birthday shaker

The colour purple has been on my mind since Becca Cruger announced her annual The Hop To STOP, so I'm taking this opportunity to remind everyone that it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and that Becca is uniting papercrafters all over the world to increase awareness for the victims of domestic violence.  You can read all about it on my earlier post HERE as well as heading on over to Becca's post HERE.  I hope that you will get creative and share your purple projects for this great cause.

With the background set, I hope you like my card.
I really enjoyed the birthday shaker card I made earlier this month (HERE) and just had to add another to our much needed feminine birthday card stash.


The tubes of sequins had the tiny negative bits as well and because I didn't have a variety of sizes in purple, I decided to use them too, filling the shaker well with them all, even adhering some to the card front as accents.


I think the sequins, "confetti bits" and seed beads make for a pretty mix together.

  4. This is a shaker card with a sense of humor. It fooled me into thinking some sequins had escaped, lol. Well done.

      ... and yes, bundles of sequins really did escape, they always seem to do that for me and turn up in the strangest of places!

      It really wasn't any trouble gluing them down, just put down some tiny dots of Tombow Mono Multi, let it dry for a few seconds then they were securely in place, actually easier than normal cupped sequins.
