Shaker card

Hiya! Hope everyone's having a lovely day :-) Finally managed to get some long overdue crafting time so I had a go at a shaker card. Never done one before and I have to say, I'm quite pleased with the outcome! I coloured this Forever Friends cutie with my promarkers and followed a sketch at their challenge site here. My Nan gave me the cute little star confetti from a christmas craft pack she bought last year. The paper is from the Cupcakes pad by Crafts House. I chose it cos it's lovely and colourful and looked a little like the confetti in my shaker. I tied a couple of knots in matching ribbon to replace to flowers in the sketch and attached a Forever Friends greeting.
I'm also entering this into the Pollycraft Monday Challenge (Cute and Cuddly) and the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar (Anything goes).
Enjoy your day!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
