You Sparkle!

Happy Saturday to you!  I am enjoying the quiet of my house temporarily....the kids will be up soon and the hubby will be coming home from work in a bit.  So for now, I am sipping my coffee and relaxing in my PJ's! The best kind of mornings! :)
I was inspired to create a shaker card after seeing some on Clare Buswell's blog.  I wanted a snowy frosty look to my winter card, so I picked various shades of pink, purple, and silver. 
I hand sewed the top layer of acetate and right before I finished, I snuck the sequins in. 
The sentiment is part of JustRite's, What I Like About You stamp set.  I stamped it in Versamark on vellum and heat embossed in in silver. 
For the flower I used various Spellbinder's dies.  I used the snowflake die and the Rose Creations die.  The large snowflake was a left over piece from my Cricut. I stacked them all up and added a glittery white jingle bell to the flower's center.  I tied white tulle around the top of the card and glued the flower to the center. I added some clear acrylic picks around the flower.  This was a difficult card to photograph, so I am hoping you can see it! 
The hubby and I are going to see, "American Hustle" today.  I've heard mixed reviews on it, so I guess I'll add my review into the mix later! ;)
Have a great weekend!

I saw this card on Pinterest, and just had to visit your blog and tell you how absolutely beautiful I think it is. I'm sure it will brighten someone's day because it brightened mine just by seeing it online!
