Peeking In to Say Hi!

Hi Everyone~

I hope you are all doing well!  Today I have a shaker card to share using Kylie's fabulous tutorial from our Christmas in July Celebration!  Thanks so much Kylie for the GREAT instructions! 
The moment I saw this adorable stamp I knew that I wanted to make a shaker card.   
I've used some beautiful Green German Glass Glitter (80 Grit) mixed with some Kelly Green German Glass Glitter (100 Grit) ...for the shaker part of my card!  I thought these colors were perfect to represent grass for my card.  Have you gotten your own German Glass Glitter that Wild Orchid Crafts carries...oh my word....this product takes glitter to a WHOLE new level!  The sparkle this glass glitter gives is totally out of this much more sparkly than regular glitter!!!  I'm totally in love!!! WOC carries this is many colors and in medium and fine grit levels...which also mix very well together!t
The lace I've used is actually two types of the lace at WOC! The top layer with the blue edging is White Kniting Lace with Baby Blue Edging which is layered on top of some Wide White Guipure Lace.  The bow is created with some gorgeous silk ribbon. The corner was accented using a decorative metal corner...I so love the elegance that these add!
 My flower arrangement was made using amazing Wild Orchid flowers that consists of:  25mm RoseCherry Blossoms15mm Roses, the green 15mm roses are the moss green roses from the classic colour collection (love the beautiful deep color of these!), 5mm closed rosebuds, and Gypsophilas.  The beautiful crochet butterfly is NEW Venise Lace at Wild Orchid...these appliques are stunning!!!  I then added some gorgeous self adhesive pearls to accent this beauty as well as the sentiment.  Foam tape was used to pop up the wings to appear that the butterfly has just landed on the card.  
From here you can see all the dimension of the card! :)  I hope you have enjoyed this cutie! 

♥ Thanks for stopping by! ♥
