Grateful Blooms

Happy Wednesday! I am making up for my slacking behavior last week!
Taryn is on the mend and it appears to me that our horse is too! I have to be honest I had made this for a hop and decided with everything that went on last week that I couldn't participate!
I put this really amazing shaker card together and I can't not share it!? I know yesterday's card was a shaker as well... But the bug has bit me! Now I know why everyone loves them!
Lets get to the card!!

I recently purchased My Minds Eye On Trend 2 Paper Collection! I just love the colors in these paper but somehow wanted to interpret it in my own Shaker Card Stampin' Up! way! My fabulous card started with a base of Night of Navy! I used the Gold Fancy Vellum stripe for my layer! The shaker back ground is our sadly retired Brushed Gold Card Stock. I mounted this with two layers of foam tape behind my acetate panel! When cutting out the flowers I actually cut out a bunch in different colors... But the Melon Mambo seemed to be the one I zero'd in on with it's lovely Garden Green greenery from the Botanical Builders framelit set! I came up with my own mix of sequins using two mixes from Pretty Pink Posh, Seed Beads and the Stampin Up ones from the Love Blossoms embellishment kit! The "Grateful" sentiment came from the Seasonal Framelits. This was die cut out of the Brushed Gold card stock to coordinate with back ground of the shaker window!
So glad you all stopped by! I promise, tomorrow's card is NOT a shaker!
Have a Great Day!
