Shimmer & Shake (welcome little one)

Don't you just love traditional baby icons? Me too especially when they can be renewed and "freshened up" a little bit with fun embellishments. I had a vision of this Silhouette rattle shaker filled with sequins from the moment I saw it! I have to tell ya' this was one of the easiest shakers I have ever built, it's designed to just build layers until the base is tall enough to hold the items you want to fill the shaker with. 

The Original design has a sweet little bow, but Could I leave well enough alone? Nope! I switched the bow for a 3D paper bow, I also added a scalloped edge to the back for just a little softness, I wanted a lot of dimension and femininity... partly because the new Mommy was finally graced with the little girl she has always wanted, so sweet & girly was my goal! 

Shake and Shimmer folks, shake and shimmer! I love the way this card turned out, a pretty little stamped tag, a great shaker by Lori Whitlock, the perfect sentiment sticker by SRM, and a mix of silver micro beads, and pink sequins! I may have a hard time parting with this one!

Happy Creating! Shantaie
