WPlus9 Get Sketchy Challenge #1

Hi there!  Today I have a card to share using the WPlus9 Get Sketchy with Joni #1 sketch as inspiration!  I created a bridal shower card, using the new Love Showers stamp set and Love Showers Layers dies.  I was also inspired to make a shaker card after seeing Joni's example for the challenge.

Love Showers

I will admit that I am still getting my feet wet with shaker cards.  I am intimidated by them because there is so much that can go wrong.  LOL!  But apart from this card taking a good bit of time, things came out pretty well.  I started with a white A2 card base and used Little Piggy ink to create a pink ombre.  Then I used the Love Showers Layers dies to create a rounded tag with a window for the shaker box.  On the inside of the shaker, I used Bo Peep ink to create a cloudy sky and then stamped the falling hearts using Little Piggy ink again.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink on the inside of the shaker and filled it with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins before closing it up.  I diecut the clouds, umbrella,  hearts and "love" word from white cardstock, and then used Little Piggy Ink and a blending tool to color some of the pieces.  I adhered them on top of the window of the shaker using glossy accents for a secure hold.  To finish things off, I threaded some white satin ribbon through the tag hole and tied a bow with some white and silver twine, and then adhered the shaker to the card front.

Here is a close up of the shaker:
