My card design follows the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I ended up going with the circles in the sketch as I couldn’t size a music note to fit, mostly because I wanted them to be a shaker element and you need a somewhat reasonable sized object to create one.
It was still a bit of a struggle to get the shaker element in and I almost gave up on the sketch to do it but I don’t step away from a challenge. It just wouldn’t be a challenge otherwise, right? I mean I could have just scattered the sequins around and still linked this up over at City Crafter for their confetti challenge but I wanted those shakers. We just won’t talk about how long it took to add foam tape round those small circles or indeed get the backing off said foam tape!
For my colour scheme I’ve gone with the palette from Paper Craft Crew, where I’ve used all four colours. Love to layer my cardstock, the weight it gives a card is part of what says to me it is handmade (worth every cent of the extra $5 it cost to post!), and it’s a great way to bring in colour without adding designer paper. This card is going out to a grungy girlie girl (hence the pink eye shadow and Frankenstein shirt) and the colours worked really well for that.
